Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks Die Vorlesung beschäftigt sich mit den Zusammenhängen zwischen Komsologie und Teilchenphysik. Es wird zunächst eine Einführung in die Kosmologie und das Standardmodell der Teilchenphysik gegeben. Es werden dann die wichtigsten beobachtbaren Eigenschaften unseres Universum eingeführt und deren Zusammenhänge mit der Teilchenphysik erläutert: Die kosmische Hintergrundstrahlung, primordiale Nukleosynthese und grossräumige Strukturen. Anhand der zugänglichen Beobachtungen wird das Problem der dunklen Materie erörtert. Es werden mögliche Kandidaten und Experimente zu ihrem Nachweis besprochen.

Condensed Matter

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

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?


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.
