Learning Outcome

After the course the students have acquired a deeper knowledge and unterstanding of the tools and the methods that originate from nuclear research and are used in other fields of science, as there are elementary particle physics, solid state physics, biophysics, energy production on to cultural sciences. The lecture is accompanied by exercises with the main emphasis on practical contact with the available tools.

Preconditions

Keine Vorkenntnisse nötig, die über die Zulassungsvoraussetzungen zum Masterstudium hinausgehen.

In an oral exam the learning outcome is tested using comprehension questions and sample problems.

In accordance with §12 (8) APSO the exam can be done as a written test. In this case the time duration is 60 minutes.

Remarks on associated module exams

The exam for this module can be taken together with the exam to the associated follow-up module PH2098: Nuclear Physics Methods in Interdisciplinary Research 2 / Anwendungen kernphysikalischer Methoden in der interdisziplinären Forschung 2 after the follwoing semester. In this case you need to register for both exams in the following semester.

Condensed Matter Physics

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the fundamental properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Kern-, Teilchen- und Astrophysik

Ziel der Forschung ist das Verständnis unserer Welt auf subatomarem Niveau, von den Atomkernen im Zentrum der Atome bis hin zu den elementarsten Bausteinen unserer Welt.

Biophysik

Biologische Systeme, vom Protein bis hin zu lebenden Zellen und deren Verbänden, gehorchen physikalischen Prinzipien. Unser Forschungsbereich Biophysik ist deutschlandweit einer der größten Zusammenschlüsse in diesem Bereich.
