The UFF Physics Institute (IF-UFF) has a consolidated role in basic and applied research, with a comprehensive set of areas of interest. Research at IF-UFF is centered on the search for scientific impact and innovation, which favors the frequent establishment of cooperation with national and international institutions.
In connection with its research environment, IF-UFF maintains the Graduate Program in Physics (PPGF-UFF), which is currently a program of excellence (PROEX) from CAPES. PPGF-UFF has masters and doctorate courses in physics. Several researchers from IF-UFF also work in other graduate programs at UFF, especially in the areas of engineering, geosciences and in the professional master's course in natural sciences. In addition, IF-UFF is home to the National Institute of Science and Technology in Nuclear Physics and Applications (INCT-FNA).
The research at IF-UFF is distributed in several research areas:
- Advanced nanomaterials for technological applications
- Nuclear and atomic structure and reactions and nuclear astrophysics
- Theoretical condensed matter, statistical physics and complex systems
- Applied Physics
- Quantum optics and information
- Physics of fundamental interactions and their applications
- Physics teaching and science communication
