Kondensierte Materie

Wenn Atome sich zusammen tun, wird es interessant: Grundlagenforschung an Festkörperelementen, Nanostrukturen und neuen Materialien mit überraschenden Eigenschaften treffen auf innovative Anwendungen.

Kern-, Teilchen-, Astrophysik

Ziel der Forschung ist das Verständnis unserer Welt auf subatomarem Niveau, von den Atomkernen im Zentrum der Atome bis hin zu den elementarsten Bausteinen unserer Welt.

Biophysik

Biologische Systeme, vom Protein bis hin zu lebenden Zellen und deren Verbänden, gehorchen physikalischen Prinzipien. Unser Forschungsbereich Biophysik ist deutschlandweit einer der größten Zusammenschlüsse in diesem Bereich.
