In Namur, physics is solid stuff!

PMR: a team, projects, results

Since 2008, the researchers of the department of physics of the University of NamurPMR are grouped under the banner “Research Centre in Physics of Matter and Radiation” (PMR).

During the last 5 years, this team of more than 100 people has taken part in 160 research projects, financed by the European Union (15 projects), the Belgian federal state (PAI), the Walloon region, the French community (FNRS), the University of Namur or different industrial partners.
Thanks to state-of-the-art equipment and to the excellence of the researchers which were recruited all over the world, the PMR has acquired a real international fame, and collaborates with nearly all the European countries as well as North America, the Far East, the Maghreb, Central Africa, Australia or Brazil.
Its research dynamism is stated by 2300 publications in international scientific magazines, one third of which in the past 5 years.
The linking theme of the PMR multiple research projects is interaction between radiation, in the broad sense (waves or particles) and matter, in all its states.  Very concrete research themes are developed around this concept, which matches needs in society and industry.  It also enables to promote research themes in fundamental physics.

The unifying theme linking the PMR multiple research projects is interaction between radiation, in the broad sense (waves or particles) and matter, in all its states.

 

Very concrete as well as fundamental research themes are developed around this concept, matching the society and industry needs.

It also enables to promote research themes in fundamental physics.

Finally, the PMR supports the 5 UNamur Master degrees in physics: new materials, nature and environment, optics, digital modeling and biophysics.
