• Studierende in der Gruppenarbeit

    Welcome to the Department of Physics

    We wish you a successful start into the new semester and especially to all new students, the best of luck and an exciting time. Remember, even after the orientation week, we always have an open door and are pleased to help you.

  • The future of teacher continuing education

    Launch of state-wide adult education study programme in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics (IMP)

  • Extreme conditions in semiconductors

    Physicists from the Universities of Konstanz, Paderborn and ETH Zurich have succeeded in experimentally demonstrating Wannier-Stark localization

  • Joint research programme on perovskite solar cells

    German Research Foundation (DFG) approves Priority Programme to carry out research into perovskite solar cells – coordinated by the Konstanz physicist Professor Lukas Schmidt-Mende

  • The limits of friction

    Research collaboration between physicists from Konstanz and Italy shows that static friction between surfaces can be made to disappear entirely

  • 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.
