The Doctoral School of Physics is a great preparation for almost any career, not only in academia but also in the private sector. By working with leading scientists and international colleagues on forefront ideas in science and technology you develop skills valuable in areas beyond physics. This opens a wide range of future careers.me time, you build competences that qualify you for higher-level and leadership tasks for your future employers.
The following institutes are associated with the Doctoral School of Physics:
Research areas at the Institute of Experimental Physics include studies of free atoms, molecules, and clusters using high-resolution laser spectroscopy and ionization methods, and surface scattering as well as nonlinear optics, plasma diagnostics and high temperature materials characterization.
The Institute of Solid State Physics examines the properties of solids, surfaces, and interfaces using techniques such as X-ray diffraction, infrared spectrometry, and electron microscopy. These results are being applied to problems like making better light-emitting diodes, solar cells, sensors, and transistors; making drug delivery more effective; and producing stronger paper.
The research activities of the ITPCP focus on many-body systems in solid state and plasma physics. Research topics range from weak to strong correlation effects, such as band structures, magnetism, spintronics, high temperature superconductivity, colossal magneto-resistance, plasma confinement, heating in thermonuclear fusion devices, and transport in nanomaterials.
The Institute of Materials Physics at TU Graz is working on basic and applied materials research with a major focus on nanostructured functional materials, defects in solids, and health issues of radiation physics.
The Institute for Electron Microscopy and Nanoanalysis has several of Europe‘s most advanced electron microscopes. It plays a primary role to support interdisciplinary and interfaculty research, training and education through essential resources for electron- and ion beam micro and nanocharacterization of all kinds of advanced materials.
