Laboratory of Theoretical Physics
The chair of Theoretical Physics at the University of Turku was founded in 1960. Since then the research in the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics has been focused on the topics of fundamental physical interest. Currently the main research fields include nonlinear phenomena , particle theory and cosmology, quantum physics, which is a part of the newly established Turku Center for Quantum Physics, and theoretical solid state physics . Active international collaboration is an essential part of the research work.
