The physics department cordially invites all graduates, staff and friends to our annual celebration. It will take place on Wednesday, July 11th at 2 p.m.

Please have a look at the program …
Research Highlight

Attosecond slow motion

Observing ultrafast processes

Prof. Dr. Birgitta Bernhardt measuring at the Physics Department at the Technical University of Munich

Many chemical processes run so fast that they are only roughly understood. To clarify these processes, a team from TUM’s Physics Department has now developed a methodology with a resolution of quintillionths of a second.

World map of international students


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.
