About

The two-year Physics and Astronomy - Advanced Matter and Energy Physics programme of the University of Amsterdam, a joint degree with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, is among the best experimental physics programmes in the world. It offers you challenging courses and research opportunities in hot topics in laboratories around the world and prepares you for an exciting career in research.

Overview

What does Advanced Matter and Energy Physics at the UvA have to offer me?

Experimental physics in Amsterdam is among the best in the world. The Physics and Astronomy - Advanced Matter and Energy Physics programme of the University of Amsterdam offers challenging courses and research opportunities focused on current trends in the field. For example, you can participate in research projects on:

  • Next generation energy materials and processes (such as nanocrystals, nanowires and nanophotonic systems for tomorrow's solar energy conversion)
  • Complex condensed matter systems (with properties like unconventional superconductivity)
  • Complex liquids, granular, soft and biomatter (with properties like jamming and self-organisation)
  • New forms of ultracold atomic quantum matter (with properties like strong correlations and entanglement)
  • Precision measurements on (cold) atoms and molecules, to test fundamental physics theories
  • 2D metallic states at the surface of 3D topological insulators, and the phenomena these states can be used to explore (such as Majorana fermions and magnetic monopoles)
  • State-of-the-art lasers
