RESEARCH

Since re-opening the Bachelor of Science in Physics program in 2016, the Department of Physics has established research groups catering the different research interests of its faculty.

CONDENSED MATTER PHYSICS GROUP

The Condensed Matter Research Group investigates on cooperative phenomena and diverse properties of condensed matter physics. Main topics of interest include semiconductor device physics, phase transitions, spin electronics, magnetism, thermoelectricity, percolation, superconductivity, and transport properties and quThe Condensed Matter Research Group investigates on cooperative phenomena and diverse properties of condensed matter physics.

SPACE ENVIRONMENT AND ATMOSPHERIC RESEARCH GROUP

Our research deals with the study of space environment and the atmosphere using different space-based and ground-based systems. 

Currently, we focus on the use of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) (e.g., GPS) to estimate ionospheric total electron content and study its response to geomagnetic and solar activities and its effects to radio wave propagation.  We also estimate tropospheric precipitable water vapor content using GNSS and compare it with hydrological and meteorological phenomena.

Earth observation using space and ground based remote sensing techniques is also being done in this group.
