  • Using light to transmit quantum bits

    Physicists in Princeton, Konstanz and Maryland couple quantum bits to light

  • Qualified successfully

    In the winter term 2017/18 fourteen tutors from the physics, biology and chemistry departments completed the didactics program "QualiTut - Tutor Training".  The engagement is rewarded with 3 ETCS in the area of transferable skills

  • Excellent teaching

    The best teaching and excellent study conditions are very important to us. We constantly endeavour to improve and co-ordinate our lectures and courses and therefore believe in a close interlinking of experimental and theoretical content in the first semesters with two lecturers in one course and a constant harmonization with the laboratories. Small tutorials with a maximum of 12 students are our standard.

  • Research at the Department of Physics

    In the 21st century nanotechnology is the technology of the future and “nano” is the subject of research at the Department of Physics in Konstanz. The world of the very small is dominated by exotic principles of quantum physics where ordinary materials show novel and surprising properties. Also, light is a quantum phenomenon and much of its nano properties are still not well understood. The insight to the laws in the nano-level allows producing novel materials with tailor-made properties.
