About the Department

Department presentation

Academic Profile

The Department of Physics combines areas of great complementarity and combines great scientific interest with the importance of their applications. The academic profile of the Department of Physics is based on a set of commonly accepted principles, values ​​and beliefs that include quality, excellence, collaboration and counseling. Interdisciplinarity is reflected in the teachers of the department.

Intelligent materials, sensors, controllers, biomechanical applications are implemented in modern electronic devices. Chua chaotic circuits find application in cryptography and secure data transmission. Implementation of artificial intelligence at hardware level is made possible through microelectronic devices (eg memristor). New data from the superconductivity field are forcing the scientific community to revise its energy orientations. Complexity theory, neural networks, network theory, are modern tools that a physicist must possess and use to compete in an ever-evolving scientific environment that produces cutting-edge technologies.

Collaborations and Conferences

The compensatory benefits of this venture for graduates of this new Department of Physics derive from the use of modern research equipment, collaboration with the CERN Research Center, the organization of global conferences (International Conference on EconoPhysics I, II, III) and will assist in the creation of interdisciplinary postgraduate studies in Greece and abroad.


The Department will always be at the forefront of the country’s scientific and technological development through the creation of state-of-the-art laboratories and, since its inception, will introduce new standards in the country in relation to the research and organization of studies of top-class foreign counterparts. .

The Department’s leading scientific position in collaboration with CERN will create a flow of excellent scientists to the country making the difference for its graduates.

Object of Studies

The student will be able to attend a course of study that will lead him / her into modern areas such as:
1. Solid State Physics (Nanotechnology)
2. Complexity and Nonlinear Dynamics
3. Nuclear Physics
4. Quantum Mechanics
5. High Energy Physics
6. Electronics and Telecommunications
7. Atomic, Molecular Physics and Optics
8. Theoretical Engineering
9. Meteorology, Climatology and Environment
10. Astronomy, Astrophysics and Plasma Physics

but also in non-traditional directions such as financial data analysis and forecasting.

The Department will systematically monitor international research developments, both in Contemporary Physics as well as in related applied and technological directions. In addition, it will develop intense activity in a wide range of research topics in Nuclear Physics, Particle Physics, Cosmology, Concentrate Physics, Molecular Physics and Biophysics. Research is enhanced through a network of international collaborations with leading universities and research centers abroad.

The Department will offer a solid and integrated Curriculum, both at Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Doctoral level, enabling students to be exposed to new developments in Basic and Applied Physics through their participation in a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. research theses.

Awards & Distinctions

The Department awards prizes for excellence in research as follows:

– Distinguished Professor Award. A formal mention by the Department’s Committee to encourage faculty members and promote excellence.
– Distinguished Researcher Award . An official mention or even a cash prize from a Department Committee for the purpose of promoting excellence.
– Distinguished Student Award. Annual Prize from the Committee to a distinguished Student with the aim of encouraging research and promoting excellence.

SiP’cools (Science in Physics is Cool) – Popular Physics

The Department will organize lectures for the general public and explain how using the principles of Physics, Complexity, Neural Networks and Artificial Intelligence can improve people’s lives in a meaningful way. Specific objectives are to objectively assess current and future health, economic and social needs.

Women in science

Physics is not a male affair. Through the Strategic Development Committee on the position of women in physics, we will encourage the preservation and development of women physicists at all levels.

Our Laboratories

The department has 5 statutory laboratories, which form the core of research activities and innovative actions, and their rules of procedure are defined.
