The Department's research activity was directed along three main lines: Atmospheric sciences, Elementary particle physics, and Materials physics.


The image depicts an output from a numerical simulation of a merger between two gas-rich disk galaxies right after the two galaxies have passed their first pericenter. The smoothed gas density is shown in red and the smoothed stellar component is shown in blue.

In 2015 the Department produced 600 scientific publications, large majority of them in leading journals with referee system. Easy access to the publications can be found in:
