Fisica e Chimica - Emilio Segrè

Research at DiFC – Emilio Segrè

DiFC – Emilio Segrè has a long tradition of excellent Scientific research, and continues to host a vibrant research activity in many different branches of contemporary Physics and Chemistry. Research activities are carried out within the Department's laboratories, but many of our projects also involve a well-established network of collaborations on a global scale. The research carried out at DiFC covers several different areas in fundamental and applied Science, reflecting the heterogeneous composition of the Department and its inherent interdisciplinary character:
