The Department of Physics at SUSTech places equal emphasis on teaching and scientific research, and attaches high importance to high-quality individualized education so as to train postgraduates to their best. Postgraduates are required to obtain certain credits and gain a systematic training in the theories and methods of the discipline. We also pay attention to training postgraduates in scientific methodology and academic quality according to the characteristics and requirements of different specialties, in order to develop their ability to engage in independent academic research.
We are committed to cultivating outstanding talents with a solid foundation in mathematics, extensive and systematic knowledge of physics, basic skills and methods in physics experiments, better understanding of the frontiers and development trends of physics, scientific and innovative spirit, and ability to conduct interdisciplinary cooperation.
The research areas of the Department of Physics are divided into Condensed Matter Physics, Theoretical Physics, Computational Physics and Optics.
The research contents of Condensed Matter Physics include correlated electron systems, low dimensional electron systems, topological matter, etc.
The research contents of Theoretical Physics include quantum gravity, field theory, condensed matter theory, atomic and molecular physics, quantum information, etc.
The research contents of Computational Physics include computational condensed matter physics, computational material science, integrated computational material science, etc.
The research contents of Optics mainly focus on the basic properties of optical radiation and interaction between light and matter, including the generation, transmission, control and detection of light, as well as related scientific issues in the interdisciplinary area of optics and biology, medicine and materials.
