The Master in physics includes a specialization in particle physics, theoretical physics, applied physics, astronomy, astrophysics, or quantum matter physics. This Master opens the way to careers in research, teaching, industry, economy or finance.

DQMP employs the largest number of researchers in physics at UNIGE, and produces results with great potential for industry and economy. A Master with specialization in quantum matter physics constitutes an ideal entry for professional and academic careers. It covers a broad range of research fields, ranging from atomic-scale structures, monotatomic layers and multilayers, monocrystals, nanomaterials, superconductors, organic metals, carbon structures, magnetic materials, multiferroics, ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics and many more.

The Master is composed of theory courses, practical work, and individual research projects.

Master in quantum matter physics

During the first year of their degree, master students in quantum matter physics will acquire a strong foundation in important theoretical methods and models used to understand and describe the rich variety of physical phenomena occurring in quantum materials. The second year of the program is devoted to an experimental or theoretical research project applying state-of-the-art methods to fundamental questions and fascinating materials at the forefront of quantum matter physics.
