Quantum physics is relatively young, but rapidly developing field of physics studying the nature and peculiar properties of interaction between elementary particles constituting the basis of our world. Department of Applied Quantum Physics and Nuclear Engineering has been newly established in 2021 with the goal to foster young generation of scientists and engineers who will challenge the utilization of quantum physics in development of novel and advanced technology for our society.
The advancement of technology in modern world has surpassed the scope of classical physics already. The development of many advanced technologies, such as semiconductors and superconductors technology, advanced measurement techniques using accelerators and electron microscopes, medical applications using high energy particle beams, energy generation technologies using nuclear fusion and fission, solar energy generation and energy storage technology, have enriched our lives, and all of them relies on the fundamental principles of quantum physics. To move further towards smart, energy efficient and environmentally friendly society, we need new, even more cutting-edge technology based on radical use of newest quantum physics advancements. If you are the one who wants to contribute to the new scientific and engineering fields, join us and study the fundamental of quantum physics and engineering. We have confidence that studying at this department grows yourselves, envisions the new concepts, and contributes to open the new era of quantum technologies.
In the undergraduate course, you will learn systematically the basic physics subjects that make up modern physics, such as mechanics, electromagnetics, thermodynamics, and statistical mechanics, along with quantum mechanics and relativity theory. The curriculum also covers advanced physical subjects of applied physics, quantum beams, accelerator engineering, material science, nuclear physics, nuclear engineering, and so on, which helps you to acquire the basics of quantum physics and a sense of their engineering applications.
In the graduate course for Master and Doctor degrees, you will learn advanced specialized subjects. Education and research topics are broadly divided into the four fields:
