departement physique [Description]

The Department of Physics is one of the 8 departments of the Faculty of Sciences, which includes 693 teacher-researchers and 77 BIATSS.

The following are directly attached to the Department of Physics in 2021: 73 Lecturers, 44 University Professors, 4 ATERs (Temporary Teaching and Research Assistants), 24 CMEs (Contractual Doctoral Candidates with a Teaching Mission), 2 PRAGs, 2 Associate Professors, 3 PASTs, and 12 IATSSs.

More widely, about 153 teacher-researchers, 150 CNRS researchers and 300 technical staff ITA/IATSS are involved in the research units and/or training courses related to physics.

All the disciplines of physics are represented in the department, from nanotechnologies to astrophysics, including the physics of instabilities, optics and the sciences of thermonuclear fusion (in the perspective of the ITER project).

A dozen laboratories are attached to the Department of Physics covering a wide range of fields.

From the infinitely small to the infinitely large: Theoretical physics, Elementary particles, Nanosciences - Micro and nano electronics, Space astrophysics
From the photon to the energy of the future: Optics and photonics, Fusion - ITER...
From complexity to interfaces: Turbulence, Aerodynamics...

  • Experimental Physics Department

    Each year, students of Licences, Masters and Teaching Competitions are welcomed for their practical work in our Experimental Physics Services. At a time when the Physics courses offered within the framework of the LMD reform strongly reaffirm the primordial role of experimentation at the heart of the training of young scientists, we owe it to ourselves to ensure a quality service to the teacher-researchers and students who work at Aix-Marseille-Université.

    TP's rooms welcome about 1500 students and 90 professors-researchers. The courses concerned are the following:

    • Licences (Physics, Physics-Chemistry/Bio, SPI, Sc & Hum, Math-Info, etc.)
    • Preparation for the Polytech Marseille engineering schools.
    • Various AMU masters (5 M1 including Physics, MINELEC,... and M2 including "Plasma-lasers" and "Materials & nanosciences (MANE)".
    • Various professional masters (M1 Instrumentation, M2 IOL) of AMU.
    • Tele-teaching in physics and chemistry, from the Licence to the Master.
    • The specific teachings for the preparation of the external and internal competitions:
      • the Agrégation in physics and chemistry
      • the CAPES in physics and chemistry
      • the PLP of math-physics

    "The hand of Man is the instrument of instruments", Aristotle.

  • Department's web service

    The team of the Department's Web service is at your service for any questions relating to the creation, maintenance or management of the pages contained in the Physics Department website.

    Our missions :

    • Help with the migration of the old sites linked to the Department of Physics to the AMU site.
    • Help in the realization of the sites of formation related to the Department of Physics.
    • Coordination and monitoring of the pages present on the Department's website.
    • Liaison with the DOSI concerning all questions related to the creation, evolution or modification of the Department's sites.

    And this, in a joyful and good mood
