Research & Teaching

The Department of Physics at the Catholic University of Louvain (UCL) pursues research activities in high energy physics (both experimental and theoretical), in nuclear physics, in collective phenomena in condensed matter, in atomic physics and optics, and in climatology.

Through experimental collaborations with CERN and DESY, foremost within the CMS experiment at the LHC, as well as collaborations in theoretical physics with a variety of international research institutions, the high energy physics activities are mostly focused on the basic structures of matter and the fundamental interactions, on astroparticle physics, on cosmology, and on the fundamental quantum unification of all interactions and matter. Important instrumental and technical developments are thus realised within the Department of Physics, also towards other fields of applied physics, technology and medical physics.

The physics curriculum at the UCL is organised within the european framework of bachelor (3 years) and master's (2 years) degrees within these different fields. Ph.D. research projects are pursued within either the Quantum Physics Graduate School, or the Geosciences Graduate School.
