The department traditionally focuses on basic research. We explore both experimentally and theoretically the topics of biophysics, ultra-short time physics, nano- and surface physics. We deal with fundamental issues that will become relevant for others in the years to come. We reveal insights and formulate models that users, developers, and engineers will transform into product innovations in a few decades.
Our courses give students the core physics content combined with insights from current physical research, which we conduct in our laboratories and at research institutions worldwide. Students experience lecturers who are passionate about physics research.
In the Didactics of Physics, we test and evaluate innovative teaching and learning concepts and develop digital solutions for teaching physics at school. We pass this knowledge on to future physics teachers who we train at our Department.
