The Doctoral School of Physics was established in 1994, based on four traditional research fields of physics at University of Szeged (formerly JATE University): atomic physics, optics and laser physics, solid state physics and biophysics. Since then new co-operating institutions and groups has joined the School, which led to a significant expansion of the research areas and profiles. The School reached its present form in 2007, integrating 11 co-operating departments of 3 national research/educational institutes. The School offers graduate courses in a broad range of physics, including atomic and molecular physics, optics and laser physics, material science, mathematical physics, astrophysics, biophysics, clinical radiology and nuclear medicine. Well-equipped laboratories are available for experimental research projects. Facilities include several high-intensity and ultrashort-pulse lasers, atomic-force-, optical- and electron microscopes, spectrographs, vacuum chambers, clinical CT-, MR- and SPECT-equipments, a computer grid and an astronomical observatory. The research projects are funded by national and international (mostly EU-) agencies.
