The Área de Física of PEDECIBA supports investigation in physics and related fields and offers postgraduate education in physics, at both the masters and doctorate levels.  We support both experimental and theoretical investigations in a wide range of areas in the physical sciences. Researchers belonging to the Área work in acoustics, astronomy, biomechanics, field theory, climate science, quantum and atomic physics, solid state, high energy physics, medical physics, solar energy, computational physics, non-linear physics, teaching of physics, statistical mechanics of quantum systems, applied optics, and complex systems.

PEDECIBA Física is of key importance to Uruguayan physicists. It is an organization which brings together and represents the physics community, and it provides financial and administrative support. The Área helps cover various research costs, such as small equipment purchases and travel to international conferences. It hires specialized technicians, maintains workshops and purchases scientific bibliography. In addition it maintains international cooperation agreements and memberships in scientific societies.   The Área administers a program of post graduate studies in physics, and finances internships introducing undergraduate students to research. Finally, the Área supports the Uruguayan Physics Society, The Uruguayan Astronomy Society, the Physics and Astronomy Olympiads, physics conferences in Uruguay, and visits of international scientists, as well as other activities that benefit the physics community and society.
