Research activities of the Physics Department fall traditionally into two main areas:

Other important research concerns educational and historical physics as well as scientific museology, with dissemination activities that fall with the framework of science education as well as popular science.

Beyond traditional research of fundamental character, growing importance is given to applied and interdisciplinary physics, especially related to areas of great strategical interest such as health and biomedical physics, radioprotection and radiobiology, renewable energies and photovoltaics, cultural heritage, Information and Communication Technologies. Such activities are often developed through technological transfer and collaborations with various industries and research institutions.

This section gives a short description of the various research lines, of applied research and technological transfer, with details on laboratories and equipment and on publications.
