About the programme
The Doctoral School of Physics is based on the research fields of astrophysics, biophysics, laser physics, optics, radiology and nuclear medicine, solid state physics and laser-matter interaction, theoretical and mathematical physics. The School offers graduate courses in a broad range of physics, including atomic and molecular physics, optics and laser physics, material science, mathematical physics, astrophysics, biophysics, clinical radiology and nuclear medicine. Well-equipped laboratories are available for experimental research projects. Facilities include several high intensity and ultrashort-pulse lasers; atomic force, optical and electron microscopes; spectrographs; vacuum chambers; clinical CT, MR and SPECT equipment; a computer network, and an astronomical observatory. The research projects are funded by national (OT KA, NFÜ) and international (mainly EU ) agencies.
Educational programmes of the Doctoral Schools: astrophysics, biophysics, laser physics, optics, radiology and nuclear medicine, solid state physics and laser-matter interaction, theoretical and mathematical physics.
Sample research areas: UV photoablation of polymers and biological materials; Computational modelling of biomolecules; Laser-plasma interactions; Harmonic generation; Spectroscopy of biomembranes and membrane proteins; Nuclear medicine; Extrasolar planets, optical photometry and time series analysis of astronomical objects; Black holes; Cosmology; Gravitational waves.
