Research Highlight

New solar cells for space

Solar cells on successful rocket flight

Almost all satellites are powered by solar cells - but solar cells are heavy. For the first time a research team from TUM and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) has now tested a new, much lighter type of solar cells in space.

Condensed Matter Physics

Vacuum apparatus for condensed matter physics

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

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

Particle Physics with Prof. Fabbietti

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?


Biophysics discussion in the Dietz Lab

Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
