Module PH1356

This module handbook serves to describe contents, learning outcome, methods and examination type as well as linking to current dates for courses and module examination in the respective sections.

Basic Information

PH1356 is a semester module in German or English language at Bachelor’s level which is offered in winter semester.

This Module is included in the following catalogues within the study programs in physics.

  • Catalogue of student seminars for the Bachelor's programme Physics
  • Catalogue of student seminars for condensed matter physics

If not stated otherwise for export to a non-physics program the student workload is given in the following table.

Responsible coordinator of the module PH1356 is Dirk Grundler.

Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


In the proseminar, the talks given by students being in the 5th term (BSc students) or MSc students address timely topics of the physics of nanostructures, in magnetism and magnetoelectronics. Students will be supervised by the professor and/or further research scientists who will first introduce the relevant topic to the student.

Learning Outcome

The student learn about the scientific topic itself, e.g., related to reserach considered in the excellence cluster "nanosystems initiative munich (NIM)" or the transregional research center TRR80 "From electronic correlations to functionality", the creation of relevant slides, the handling of modern presentation techniques and ad hoc scientific discussions. Talks will be given in English.

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?


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.
