75 Years of Physics at the "German Oxford" — Advancing Insights into Nature

Today's basic research lays the foundation for future innovations. For us, new physics students are the innovators of tomorrow. We integrate new talents into our research community during their bachelor's and master's studies, preparing them for complex roles in research. We sharpen their eye for sustainable solutions and novel technical developments. We promote competence, creativity, and a responsible approach to the environment.

Rooted in a Breakthrough Physics Tradition

Initially, physicists at Freie Universität Berlin were housed in the buildings of the former Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physics, where Max Planck and Albert Einstein once worked. Today, the Physics Department is a diverse community that promotes free thinking and encourages a passion for innovation.
