About 80 students from four departments form the Ph.D. School at DTU Physics. As a PhD student you work in one of DTU Physics seven research sections.

Research into the technology of the future requires engineers with a command of basic physics right down to the atomic level. On the Physics and Nanotechnology programme you learn how to design and manufacture materials using the smallest components available—atoms and molecules. You can work on the development of optical communications, biosensors, and the energy supply of the future.
