Courses, Learning and Teaching Methods and Literature

Courses and Schedule

Learning and Teaching Methods

Preparation and presentation of a scientific talk, beamer presentation, board work, advisor discussion, literature search and studies.

Media

Presentation materials, complementary literature

Literature

Specialized literature to the individual topics of the seminar talks will be provided;
own literature search.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

In the course of the seminar each student individually prepares a talk on a topic of current research. Based on this talk the learning outcome is tested.

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?

Biophysics

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.
