Brief introduction

Physics is the study of the behavior of space, time, fields, and matter. Research in physics seeks to explore and explain fundamental questions that range from the largest scales involving the entire universe to the smallest, involving the most fundamental particles. Using highly advanced experimental techniques and mathematical methods, physicists construct theories that explain how the universe behaves.  

Department of Physics at the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) is one of the places in the world for research and education in physics. Coupled with an emphasis on strong fundamentals in basic physics, students, are mentored in research topics of their choice, with a selection from the fields of quantum information, atomic and laser physics, condensed matter physics, classical and quantum metrology, biophysics and sensor physics
