Welcome at the Department of Physics
Who we are
The Department of Physics supports and coordinates research activities in most areas of Physics. It also manages the Bachelor's Degree in Physics, the Master's Degree in Physical Sciences as well as a Master Course in Radioprotection. In addition the department of Physics hosts the PhD School in Physics.
Advanced Quantum ESPRESSO school
The goal of this school is to introduce PhD students, postdocs, and junior scientists to the use of advanced functionals aimed at modeling complex materials, such as the extended Hubbard and Koopmans functionals. By eliminating self-interaction errors and restoring total energy piecewise linearity, these advances broaden the scope of DFT by either improving the ground-state description of transition-metal and rare-earth compounds or by giving access to accurate spectral properties (like fundamental band gaps and band structures).
Nicole Rosi premiata da INRiM
Nicole Rosi, laureata magistrale in Scienze fisiche presso l'Università di Pavia, è una dei cinque giovani laureati premiati da INRiM - Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica in occasione della terza edizione del concorso dedicato alle migliori tesi di laurea magistrale attinenti a misurazioni di precisione o a studi (sia teorici che sperimentali) di fenomeni o tecnologie che possano contribuire, direttamente o indirettamente, alla scienza delle misure o alla verifica delle leggi della natura.

The research activity at the Department of Physics covers several branches: theoretical and experimental physics, condensed matter, nuclear and particle physics, astrophysics, applied physics, science education and history of physics. In addition there are several active collaborations with national and international research centers.
Rules of Conduct - Teaching Activities and Exams - 1st semester 2023/2024
Exams, teachings, available spaces.
Thanks to the innovative education that combines a multidisciplinary attitude with high quality specialisation, the UniPV Department of Physics gave me the opportunity to explore new fields after my Master, until I landed at the European Central Bank.
Team Lead ECB Climate Change Centre
Thanks to the international collaborations and skills acquired during my PhD in Physics in Pavia, I could move to Canada and join a young dynamic company, strongly oriented to research and development of new technologies in the field of quantum computing.
Quantum Photonics Researcher Xanadu Quantum Technologies Inc.
The training I received at the Department of Physics was fundamental to continuing my professional career and gave me a sound basis for pursuing my PhD abroad in a highly interdisciplinary environment.
