About Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México
The Institute of Physical Sciences is dedicated to both basic and applied research in different areas of the physical sciences ranging from polymer nanocomposites to cosmology. The Institute's faculty consists of 38 full time professors and 12 academic technicians working on Materials Science, Plasma Physics, Solid State Physics, Nonlinear Phenomena and Complex Systems, Polymer Physics, Biophysics and Physical Chemistry, Nonlinear Optics, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Mathematical Physics, Celestial Mechanics and Classical and Quantum Field Theory. Experimental research is carried out in eight laboratories encompassing the following areas: Biophysics, Materials Science, Atomic Collisions, Spectroscopy, Low Temperature Plasma Physics, Nanopolymers and colloids, Elastic Vibrations and Continuum Media, and Nonlinear Optics.
The Institute is located in Cuernavaca, the capital city of the State of Morelos. Cuernavaca is about 60 Km south of Mexico City and has been called “the city of the eternal spring”, due to its good weather and abundant vegetation throughout the year. Thus, although the Institute belongs to the National Autonomous University of Mexi...co (UNAM), there is a good and close relationship with the science and engineering schools of the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos (UAEMor).
