Open House on October 13, 2018

The Physics Department cordially invites to the annual open house on 13 October 2018 and presents an exciting program! This is your chance to experience science and research up close and personal – in the anniversary year 2018 at all TUM locations.

Find out more about our physics program!
Research Highlight

What Einstein didn't know

A quantum leap takes 45 attoseconds

An der Attosekunden-Ultrahochvakuum-Beamline des Lehrstuhls für Laser- und Röntgenphysik an der TUM

More than a hundred years ago Einstein described the photoelectric effect. At this electrons are emitted when light shines on a material. Now scientists have for the first time experimentally measured the duration of such a quantum leap.
Come and visit this and others of our modern labs at our Open house day!

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.
