Selected Topics of Semiconductor Physics - A scientific symposium in memory of Professor Dr. Frederick Koch

On November 23, 2012 the Physics Department and Walter Schottky Institut of Technische Universität München held a scientific sypmposium in memory of Prof. Frederick Koch

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.
