Physics of Condensed Matter and Materials from Charles University is devoted to experimental and theoretical study of properties of condensed systems, their microphysical interpretation and possible applications, in particular with respect to the current development of materials research. 


At Physics of Condensed Matter and Materials from Charles University the students can select one of the following specializations: Physics of atomic and electronic structures, Physics of macromolecular compounds, Physics of materials, Low temperature physics, Physics of surface modifications. Each of these blocks provides a general education in condensed matter physics at the contemporary level of knowledge and shapes the graduate in selected specialization.

Students at Physics of Condensed Matter and Materials from Charles University  will:

  • acquire a broad education in the fundamentals of quantum theory, thermodynamics and statistical physics of condensed systems and the corresponding computing methods.
  • be able to describe the structure of the systems in different forms, their mechanical, electrical, magnetic and optical properties. 
  • have a general knowledge of experimental methods of characterizing the structure, composition and properties of condensed compounds through for example diffraction, spectroscopic and microscopic techniques
  • be able to find suitable positions in institutions of basic physical, chemical and biomedical research, universities, applied research laboratories, testing laboratories, and in hygiene and ecology institutions.
