University year 2018/2019
Welcome meeting: Sept. 11th 2018 at 11 a.m. (Auditorium – IPCMS)
Beginning of classes Sept. 12th 2018
|The Specialty Condensed Matter and Nanophysics is one of the six specialties offered in the second year (M2) of the Master of Physics of Strasbourg. The first year (M1) of the Master of Physics is common to all specialties. The possibility of preparing the “aggregation de physique” is also offered to students.
The Condensed Matter and Nanophysics speciality covers a broad spectrum of research themes from several physics laboratories in Strasbourg. It combines a personalized research work, in laboratory, allowing a preparation for a career in research, in academic or industrial environment. In particular, it aims to manufacturing, characterizing and understanding solid or polymeric objects, with particular emphasis on nanometric objects. This field of research is booming due to the growing importance of research into the nano world. This training by and for research aims to form experimental and theoretical physicists in the field of Condensed Matter.
Principal Research Themes:
- Nanostructures and nanophysics
- Mesoscopic systems
- Low dimensionality systems
- Surfaces and interfaces
- Near field microscopy
- Magnetism of multilayers
- Theory of Electronic Structure of Solids
- Nonlinear optics
- Femtosecond dynamics of electronic states
- Colloids and interfaces
- Polymers and membranes
- Physics of biological systems
- Molecular materials
- Liquid crystals
- Theoretical physics of disordered systems
- One-dimensional systems strongly correlated
- Molecular dynamics for materials science
Conditions of admission
Students holding a bachelor’s degree in physics and physics applications are authorized to enroll for the first year of the Physics Master.
For other students:
Already registered at the University of Strasbourg and hold a degree of french “licence” in physics
Students outside the UNISTRA holding a bachelor’s degree or equivalent degree (French or foreign). The admission to the 1st year Master is subject to authorization by the Pedagogical Committee after examination of the student application.
Prerequisites: Strong knowledge of physics, mathematics and computer science at the bachelor degree.
Entry into second year (M2):
Admission to the 2nd year Master is open to students who have validated the 1st year Master’s degree in Physics. Direct admission is also open to students with a level M1 from other UNISTRA Masters or other universities and engineering school students. In both cases, the enrollment of students in the course “Condensed Matter and Nanophysics” is subject to the authorization of the Pedagogical Committee after review of the student application.
|Prerequisites: Good knowledge of quantum mechanics and statistical physics is essential. The M2 courses are given in English, so a good command of scientific English is required.|
