The Master Program in
Physics of the State University of Maringá was recommended by CAPES
(official Brazilian agency) in March/1997, and was deployed in August
1997 in the following concentration area: CONDENSED MATTER PHYSICS,
with 4 research lines:
a) Photothermal Phenomena;
b) Complex Fluids;
c) Preparation and Characterization of Special Materials;
d) Statistical Physics and Phase Transitions
In March/2000 it was implemented a Ph.D. Program in Physics, in
association with the State University of Londrina. This course lasted
In early 2008, the GRADUATE PROGRAM IN PHYSICS of the State University
of Maringá (PFI/UEM) was approved by CAPES with two degrees: Master and
PhD. The program was recommended by the Scientific Technical Council of
Higher Education (CTC) of CAPES (103rd and 106th CTC Meeting),
receiving the concept 5 (five).
Currently, the faculty of the PFI/UEM consists of 13 supervisors, all
productivity research scholarships from the Scientific and
Technological National Council (CNPq) official agency.
