The Physics Division hosts several research groups offering a wide range of scientific topics in different scientific areas. Experimental, theoretical and computational activities are carried out within the Physics Division. The research groups enjoy close connections with local, national and international partners and results obtained by our scientists are reported in many publications on high-level international magazines. 

The current activities carried out at the Physics Division are related to research broadly including quantum technologies, material science, nanoscience, materials for energy and environment, theoretical and computational science including machine-learning applications, nuclear physics and astrophysical science.

The evaluation of research activities places the Physics Division of UniCam among the best Italian research Institutes in Physics (obtaining an average normalized mark of 1.07 in latest available ANVUR report 2011-2014)
The recent evaluation of the research activities has confirmed that the Physics Division at UniCam is ranked among the best Italian research Institutes in Physics (ANVUR global factor R=1.09 in 2013).
