Institute of Physics " Ioan Ursu "

The Institute of Physics “Ioan Ursu” includes the research centres and the laboratories from the Faculty of Physics of the University Babes-Bolyai, professors, researchers, PhD students and Master students. Its name was conferred in 2007 as a gesture of gratitude and appreciation of the entire scientific activity with results of wide national and international recognition of the Academician Professor Ioan Ursu, its beginnings being much related to the Faculty of Physics from Cluj-Napoca. The main research directions of the institute are generally overlapping to those of the entire faculty.
