Department research in reactor physics is oriented mostly into new methods for power and research reactor calculations, where special attention is given to the calibration and benchmarking of nuclear data  and computational methods. Complete power reactor core design package has been developed by Department's researchers. This core design package is being used to calculate fuel cycles for Krsko Nuclear Power Plant since its initial startup. New “Rod Insertion” method for control cluster worth measurement and relevant measuring equipment, which enables significant reduction of time needed for post-refuelling startup tests of a nuclear power plant was developed at our department. Code packages and methods for research reactors, like our Ljubljana TRIGA reactor were developed. We also perform  neutron transport calculations for JET – Joint European Torus.
The main research area in Plasma physics laboratory is development of plasma diagnostics inside fusion devices.
Our research in the field of medical physics is directed towards the image-guided cancer therapy.
Semiconductor physics research is mostly oriented towards better understanding of metal – semiconductor junction and development of organic semiconductors.
