Prof. Andrzej Buras

Andrzej Buras has been elected a foreign member of the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences in Cracow. As a leading researcher in applied quantum-field theory, Carl von Linde Senior Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Study at TUM and project leader in the Munich Cluster of Excellence Universe, he is elected on the basis of his studies of strong-interaction (QCD) effects in deep-inelastic processes, calculations of higher-order QCD effects in weak and rare meson decays and extensive studies of the physics beyond the Standard Model in flavour changing neutral current processes for which he recently won an Advanced ERC-Grant.

The academy in Cracow has its roots in the Cracow Learned Society, formed in 1815. In the 1950s it merged with other institutions to form the Polish Academy of Sciences based in Warsaw, but it regained its independence in 1989. Other foreign members who are theoretical particle physicists include James Bjorken, Frank Wilczek and Martinus Veltman.

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.
