Research areas in the cradle of Campus Garching
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.
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?
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.
Women in our Department
The physics department supports the career development of female students and staff, and promotes awareness in questions of gender equality.
Corporate Research Centers
The Physics Department participates in a number of TUM Corporate Research Centers, which carry out cutting-edge work in highly specialist areas.
