Research Center
for Atomic Physics and Astrophysics

Understanding the atomic processes leading to the emission of radiation we detect in a multitude of wavelength ranges, in Earth and Space-based observatories, emitted in various astrophysical contexts, is of key importance for extending our knowledge on the Universe.

The Center for Atomic Physics and Astrophysics was created as a framework for scientific research and teaching excellence in these areas, which are both traditional and very active at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Bucharest.

The two Departments of the Center are:
