Long Night of Science on July 2, 2022 from 5 p.m. to midnight

Program of the Physics Department

Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften - Physik - 2019

Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften - Physik - 2019

We open our doors to the general public and invite all those interested in science to our lecture halls and laboratories. We offer a versatile program for young and old and provide insights into our work, research and teaching.

Program in German and partially in English

Our scientific teams comprises people from around the globe. On your tour through our department, you will experience a spirit of international teamwork and can have scientific conversations, eighter in German or English.

The world of physics: artificial photosynthesis, climate research and aerosols

We would like not only to present our research fields but also to show why research in the natural sciences provides the impetus for numerous new areas of application - energy technology, climate research, medical applications or nanotechnology.

Inspiration for the future

We invite all who want to become a part of our physics crew as a student or a scientist, to visit us and be inspired.

Only Some Points of Our Program

For the full program please see our German website.

Expriments & Projects

Artificial photosynthesis could open up a new way to phase out fossil fuels. With the help of a demonstration plant for solar-driven hydrogen formation, we explain and illustrate this still visionary technology.

Dau's Lab and students of the module "Exploring sustainability"

Location: Upper floor between tract 1 and 2

Biophysik-Labor

Studierende stellen ihre Ideen zur Entwicklung einer CO2-Fixierungstechnologie auf der Grundlage photosynthetischer Organismen dar. Dabei nutzen sie einen schnell wachsenden Wasserfarn, der bereits vor 49 Mio. Jahren schon einmal die Durchschnittstemperatur der Erde reduzieren konnte.

If people are talking in a room, the window panes partially absorb the sound and thus resonate. The extremely small deflections of the pane can be measured using laser beams. This method can be used not only to make sound waves visible, but also to determine mechanical material properties.

Location: Upper floor, tract 3

Kampfrath's Lab

Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften - Physik - 2019

Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften - Physik - 2019

We deal with the theory of kinetics of biological soft matter systems and resort to the topic of randomness for this purpose.

In addition to experiments on probability distributions, we offer interactive virtual reality experiments on random motion using the diffusion of molecules as an example.

Many building blocks of our matter have a magnetic moment, so they interact with magnetic fields. We will show you how we use microwave radiation and very strong magnetic fields to study solar cells and proteins to understand how they work at the molecular level.

Times: 6:45 p.m., 7:45 p.m., 8:45 p.m., 9:45 p.m., 10:45 p.m

Location: room 0.4.42

Find out how hard disks store information, what new concepts there are for magnetic data storage and what role atomically thin magnetic layers play in this. Observe how these can be explored in ultra-high vacuum using laser beams and how their magnetic properties can be improved.

Research Group Kuch

Location: Room 1.2.30

Spectroscopic and microscopic methods can be used to study biological molecules and macromolecules for their physical properties, such as the ability to transmit information.

We provide insights into current biophysical measurement and analysis methods.

Laboratory tours hourly from 6 to 10 p.m. from room 1.1.25

We explore the fundamentals of photosynthesis at the molecular level. We will guide you through our laboratories and show you how proteins are extracted from microorganisms (e.g. cyanobacteria), modified and used in research.

Lab tours every hour at 6:45, 7:45, 8:45, 9:45 and 10:45 pm

Pick up for the tours in room 1.1.25

SFBs

Collaborative research centers present an exposition of scientific projects and show exciting findings.

SFB 1078 - Proteinfunktion durch Protonierungsdynamik

SFB 1078 - Proteinfunktion durch Protonierungsdynamik

In deciphering the functioning of proteins, the nanomachines of our body, the movement of hydrogen ions (protons) plays a significant role.

We explain the theory and show you, through some experiments, the properties of protons and our methods of analysis that allow to uncover the secrets of our proteins.

Location: Room 1.1.25

Spintronics refers to a new form of information processing based not on the charge but on the magnetic moment ("spin") of electrons.
The Collaborative Research Center/TRR 227 "Ultrafast Spin Dynamics" investigates the physical basis for this on the shortest time scales, as we will show you in demonstration experiments.

Location: seminar room E2 (1.1.53)

Details about SFB/TRR 227

Collaborative Research Centres, or CRC, are long-term university-based research institutions established for up to 12 years in which researchers work together within a multidisciplinary research programme.
