Optics and Optoelectronics from Charles University investigates the structure of matter on the level of elementary particles and their fundamental interactions. Nuclear physics studies the structure of atomic nuclei and more generally the behaviour of finite quantum systems of mutually interacting particles.


Optics and Optoelectronics from Charles University study is based on comprehensive courses of theoretical and experimental particle and nuclear physics, based on extensive courses of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. The emphasis is put on mastering the relevant computational techniques and managing the methods of acquisition and evaluation of experimental data, including an efficient use of computing and advanced software tools. With the aid of optional courses and the Master thesis project, the students gain deep knowledge in a selected area and choose orientation to theory or experiment.

Students at Optics and Optoelectronics from Charles University will:

  • have a sound theoretical and experimental knowledge of classical and quantum optics and optoelectronics. 
  • master the mathematical modelling of physical processes in optics and optoelectronics. 
  • apply the knowledge and competences they have gained in research and scientific activities in optical disciplines as well as in a large number of fields where optics or optical spectroscopy are used (biology, chemistry, medicine).
