Welcome to the Department of Physics

About the Department:

    Department of physics has a long and distinguished history dating back to the university’s inception, created in 1969. It was actually started as one of the departments of College of Science in the University. The first graduate courses were introduced in 1978 and since then this department has produced number of graduates who have found employment in both  Government and Educational establishments of Kurdistan.

    Today, our new generation of physicists continues to bring new insights into the exploration of fundamental problems in different areas of theoretical, experimental, and computational physics. Examples of which are Quantum Information, Material Science, Nanotechnology, Atomic Physics, Laser Applications and Medical Physics.The Astronomy and Meteorologyare the two other subjects which provide outstanding and innovative educational opportunities to the many talented students who enroll in our flexible undergraduate and graduate programmers.

Another area of interest in our physics department is the studying of nuclear physics, focusing on the fundamentals and concepts of nuclear structure of matter. In accordance with the nuclear physics concepts, other sub-branches, such as radiology, gamma ray and nuclear medicine, are also studied.

The report about academic activities and achievements, visiting University of Cagliari - Italy, through scholarship Erasmus Mundus MARHABA program

Dr. Abdulqader A. Qader

The main goal of my mobility program was pursuing experimental work in the field of lasers and optical spectroscopy applied to cultural heritage. The first step literature review done about the recent published experimental work by the group of optical spectroscopy at Department of Physics- University of Cagliari. The second step, portable Near Infrared Micro-Raman spectroscopy was used, as a non-destructive technique, in order to investigate the mineralogical composition of a group of clay and pottery sherds. The obtained results will be analyzed and expected to be presented in a journal paper and send it for publication. Gaining the basis knowledge about this new and emerging field of the research field will be of a great importance for future direction in our Department of Physics- College of Science- University of Sulaimani.
