The Institute for Solid State Physics and Optics of the Wigner Research Centre for Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences welcomes you on our Homepage.
The institute is committed to perform frontline research projects in a broad range of the fields of condensed matter physics and laser physics. Our activity includes both basic science and technological development.
Our researchers present a variety of regular graduate and post-graduate courses at the universities in the country. Research staff members serve as supervisors for BSc, MSc, and PhD studies.
Significant part of our research is carried out in international collaborations. The institute has numerous joint projects with national high-tech companies.
Our researchers often hold popular science lectures. Twice a year on the events of "Girls' Day" and "Wigner Open Day" we receive interested primary and secondary school students. The researchers actively participate in the organization and lectures of the "Multicolor Physics Roadshow".
