Quantum Information and Optics

The Physics Department houses one of the most important research centers in optics and quantum information in Latin America: the Millennium Institute of Research in Optics, better known as MIRO. Along with this, the Physics Department manages several laboratories in the area which are related to various research projects in the fields of quantum information, quantum mechanics, and optics.


Statistical Mechanics, Complex Systems and Plasma Physics

The Physics Department does a wide range of research in these fields by both laboratories and through the Complex Systems Group. In particular, studies of various kinds have been developed such as winemaking, semiconductors, public understanding of science, education, civil unrest, geophysics, astrophysical plasmas, etc., through the Complex System Group and the Plasma Physics Group.
