The Group of Computational Physics and Applied Instrumentation (FCIA) has a highly multidisciplinary nature in its performance and composition. Assisted by modern computational infrastructure including three clusters, physicists, engineers and computer scientists develop and apply modern computational techniques in various areas of physics, biology and materials science, among others. The group also has educators who study curricular innovations in Basic Education of Physics.

The Laboratory of Applied Electronic Instrumentation aims to research in electronic instrumentation applied to experimental physics, using the latest generation techniques such as reconfigurable logic circuits, real time operating systems, low noise analog interfaces. Contact:

The Laboratory of Computational Physics ( combines the theoretical study of semiconductors to the development of models and computational simulations for the study of the electronic properties of systems such as semiconductor nanostructures (wires and quantum dots) , Spintronic and electronic devices, and new semiconductor materials. Contact:

The Group of Computational Particle Physics ( studies the strong interactions between elementary particles (quarks and gluons) through numerical simulations using Monte Carlo methods using high performance parallel processing. Contact:

The Neurobiophysical Laboratories: ( Dipteralab and Neurodynamics study experimentally the codification, processing and transmission of information in biological preparations. Contact:

The Group of Particle Astrophysics develops research in simulating the propagation of particles in the Universe and in the Earth’s atmosphere, data analysis of the Pierre Auger Observatory ( and astrophysical interpretations in cosmic rays of high energies. He is also involved in the design and construction of the CTA Observatory ( Contact:

The Group of Physics Information and Complexity studies the transformation and transport of information in systems with complex organization. The group is concerned with the problem of neural coding and decoding. Contact:

The Group of Physics Teaching develops research on curricular innovation and initial and continuing training of Basic Education teachers, particularly on the insertion of topics of Modern and Contemporary Physics for High School. Contact:
