The Centre for Physics of the University of Coimbra (CFisUC) is a Research Institute committed to excellence in Physics. CFisUC is located in the Physics Department of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra. The centre results from the merger of the Centro de Física Computacional and of the Centro de Estudos de Materiais por Difração de Raios-X. It has strong collaborations with other research institutes in Coimbra: LIP, CNC, and CISUC. Members of CFisUC are the Portuguese representatives in PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe.

CFisUC research activities' span most areas of Physics (Quantum Chromodynamics, Nuclear Physics, Electronic Structure, Nanophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, Biological Physics, Astrophysics) bridging many time and length scales. The diverse scientific expertise of the researchers has been crucial in fostering collaborations and advancing innovation in fundamental research.

Research Groups at CFisUC are organized in four working groups
