Physics is one of the oldest and most fundamental disciplines, and at IST Austria, scientists have approached questions in and inspired by this field from many different perspectives, using both experimental and theoretical methods. Research in physics often leads to technological advances, as discoveries lead to novel applications when scientists design new materials and machines to test their ideas. Physicists at IST Austria push boundaries in both aspects, and their research has led to developments in optical imaging, physical principles in biological systems, nanoelectronics, and more.
