The Department of Physics

15 groups and several junior groups perform cutting-edge research at the Department of Physics in different fields of condensed matter, ultrafast phenomena and photonic, energies, quantum information, nanophysics, magnetism, soft matter, and computational physics. The department is characterized by close collaborations between the different research groups. This is reflected by the fact that several research centers are currently established in the department, among others two collaborative research centres with the Department of Chemistry: Since 2008 the SFB 767 "Controlled Nanosystems: Interaction and Interfacing to the Macroscale" and the SFB 1214 "Anisotropic Particles as Building Blocks: Tailoring Shape, Interactions and Structures" which exists since 2016. Apart from the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science, the degree programs offered in the Department of Physics also include the Bachelor of Education and Master of Education. As a small department it is important to us that we know you personally and that we are always there for you. The study program in physics is rated among the best in the areas “support offered by teaching staff” and “students and degrees” by the Center for Higher Education Development (CHE) ranking 2015/16.
