Lines of Generation and / or Application of Programme Knowledge.

  1. Mathematical Physics.This LGAC encompasses theoretical research that uses the computational simulation tool to solve problems based on the theory of many effective bodies or potentials such as: metal clusters, atoms and confined molecules, colloidal suspensions, nanostructured systems, among others.
  2. Astrophysics, Cosmology and Particle Physics.This LGAC encompasses research on the fundamentals of particles generated at the origin of the universe, covering the study and interaction of fundamental particles, as well as the evolution of the known Universe and dark matter. For example, study of quarks, gluons, hadrons; radio ‐ emission of galactic clusters, study of planetary nebulae and massive rotating stars.
  3. Optics and electrodynamics.This line focuses on the study of the interaction and propagation of electromagnetic radiation with periodic structures.
  4. Solid state.This LGAC includes the spectroscopic study of defects in insulating materials and materials synthesized from the methods: Czochralski, chemical vapor and combustion tank, with luminescent properties, for example: KClxBr1 ‐ x: Cu, CsBr: Eu / Mn, NaCl: Cu.
  5. Interaction Radiation Matter.This LGAC involves the study of the effects of ionizing radiation on micro and nanostructured materials to optimize their luminescent, dosimetric properties and understand the physical mechanisms and their possible biomedical applications: contrast materials, sensors and radiation dosimeters.
  6. Photonic materials.This LGAC includes the synthesis, optical and electrical characterization of crystalline and amorphous semiconductor materials for photonic or optoelectronic applications. For example: thin films of semiconductors PbS, CdS, SrSe, CdSe, among others, metallic nanoparticles obtained by green route, germanatos and vanadatos with different dopings.
