Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


In the Master's thesis the project planed in the first half of the research phase is performed and a thesis is written.

Learning Outcome

With the Master's thesis the student has shown that he/she is able to work independently for a given time on a given scientific issue from the field of biophysics and to summarize the findings in a scientific report.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

The student writes a report about the results of the research phase. Two professors write an expertise about the work.

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.
