The buildings of the Department of Physics are located at the University Campus, in the southern suburbs of the city of Heraklion, on the island of Crete. We are known internationally for high quality research in all areas of modern physics, as well as for the high level of education and career opportunities offered to our students. Over the years we have developed a broad curriculum of undergraduate physics courses and a competitive graduate program leading to Masters and Ph.D. degrees.

We hope that our web pages will provide a thorough description of our activities. Please feel free to contact us if you need further information.

Selection of students of the Department of Physics for participation in the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

Every year, more than 30 Nobel Laureates convene in the town of Lindau in Germany to meet 500-600 young scientists (under and post-graduate students, as well as PhD candidates in order to exchange knowledge, ideas and experience. This year's 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting is dedicated to Physics. Already 41 Nobel Laureates have confirmed their membership as well as 580 young scientists from 88 countries. The Physics Department congratulates its graduate student A. Tsouros and its PhD candidate A. Pavli for their considerable success to be selected and admitted to participate in this year's conference in Lindau. We also note the selection of Mr. T. Ilias and I. Matheakakis, graduates of the Department who continue their studies as a doctoral candidates at the Universities of Ulm and Wurzburg (in Germany), respectively. A total of four of the eight Greek students admitted to the 69th Nobel Laureate meeting either attend or have graduated from the Department of Physics. Given the particularly high level of young scientists world-wide applying at these conferences, this year's attendance rate is extremely important and a source of a great pleasure to us.
