Physics

Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

A Physics PhD lets you develop of a broad background in basic physics, and expand your research abilities in a more specialized area such as Particle Physics, Astrophysics, Applied Physics, Quantum Physics, Optics and many more.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.

Doctors of Philosophy in Physics in Europe 2018. General objectives The aim of the Ph.D. program in Physics is not limited to give continuity to the Degree and Master courses in Physics offered at UIB. Since its inception, this Program has had a proper outreach and has attracted many students from other universities in Spain and abroad. A main reason is that the Program offers an academic and professional training at the highest scientific level and puts the focus on the capacity to face and solve problems and make original contributions to knowledge in various fields of physics. The Program offers a multidisciplinary perspective of Physics and more specific knowledge on the research lines detailed in that section, in which the institutions supporting the program (the Department of Physics of UIB, IFISC and IMEDEA) have accredited international prestige. The quality of the Ph.D. Program in Physics preceding the present one was recognized as early as in 2004, being awarded with the Quality Mention of ANECA. The Quality Mention was maintained in each of the follow-ups and renovations until it was replaced by the Excellence Mention (obtained in 2011). The challenge of the new Program is to follow the same path of excellence and internationalization, as a way to keep attracting students from other universities.

Introduction The Programme Doctoral Degree in Applied Physics Is an official university degree framed in the field of applied sciences and oriented to different aspects of science and technology. It is an interuniversity program between the University of Vigo (coordinating university) and the University of A Coruña. The objective of this program is to provide the necessary skills to our students so that through the completion of their doctoral thesis they acquire the knowledge that allows them to carry out research projects and / or their incorporation into the industrial world. Why study the degree The global society is immersed in a continuous and rapid technological evolution, which some have already proposed as a new historical, technological and social acceleration. Physics, and in particular Applied Physics, is a link that can avoid what was called a technological gap, allowing us to establish contact between natural phenomena and technological and applied "phenomena". This will favor the development of companies related to new materials and the environment such as polymers, new fuels and refrigerants, ionic liquids, physical pollutants, meteorological and / or oceanic aspects related to the environment, etc. What is learned Students can choose from three specialties. Physics Applied to Materials Physics Applied to the Environment Applied laser technologies Students can integrate into one of these lines of research: Thermofísica de Liquidos Science and Technology of Polymers Applied Physics of the Environment Applied Laser Technologies Computational Physics Lines of investigation These are the lines of research of this doctoral program: Thermodynamic...

Doctors of Philosophy in Physics in Europe 2018. Research in multidimensional complex analysis at Siberian Federal University is about several topics. The overarching theme is the interaction between complex analysis and other areas of mathematics and physics. For example, methods and techniques of functional analysis are applied to the study of PDEs in domains of complex space. Algebraic geometry plays an important role in the study of distribution of complex algebraic and analytic sets and its applications in physics. Alternatively, analytic methods are used in the theory of algebraic and hypergeometric functions, in the description of the structure of discriminantal sets. Other examples include the study of multidimensional difference equations, analytic continuation of functions and sets. Programme Leader Professor Tsikh worked at the universities of Stockholm, Bordeaux, Berlin, Calabria (Italy), Armidel (Australia), Max Planck Institute in Bonn, Institut Mittag-Leffler in Stockholm.
