Researchers from the Institute of Physics at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń conduct research work in the field of contemporary theoretical and experimental physics, as well as in interdisciplinary subfields such as: Photonics, Quantum Physics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Spectroscopy, Metrology of frequencies and gases, Quantum Chemistry, Mathematical Physics, Nanotechnology, Medical Physics, Biophysics and Bioinformatics. The research works ensure Toruń’s Physics leading position in the country and make it recognizable worldwide. Over the last ten years the Institute’s researchers have carried out over 250 research projects financed by Polish and European research agendas.
The Institute’s potential is also supported by the National Laboratory of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics- the first Polish lab of pan-regional nature. The infrastructure of the Centre of Quantum Optics allows for conducting high-quality research and educating students, who transfer the acquired knowledge and skills into the fields of science and business.
NCU’s Institute of Physics offers its students unique opportunities to work on research projects of worldwide recognizability, such as Polish Optical Atomic Clock, using optical computed tomography in biology and medicine, or in examining world-famous works of art.
