The Physics Department cordially invites its faculty, staff and friends to its annual celebration of physics.

Please have a look at our fascinating program…
Research Highlight

A memory without a brain

A single-celled slime mold takes decisions

The ability to store and recover information gives an organism a clear advantage when searching for food or avoiding harmful environments. It is believed that these abilities require a multi-celled organism with a nervous system. But now a team of researchers from TUM and MPI-DS has uncovered surprising abilities of a single-celled organism.

To the role model of our department belongs the promotion of scientific exchange and world openness.

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.
