Special features regarding teachingAt the Institute of Physics, there are approx. 25 professors working in the fields of Experimental Physics, Theoretical Physics, Chemical Physics, Solid State Chemistry, Materials Science and Didactics of Physics. The cooperation of colleagues with varying backgrounds promotes inter-disciplinary teaching. Students can choose from a broad range of special lectures and carry out final theses specialising in either Physics or Materials Sciences. In addition to the basic topics, there are also numerous application-related topics available for selection.

Special features regarding the equipmentThe Department of Physics is located in two modern research facilities as well as a lecture theatre building on the Campus of the Universität Augsburg. This guarantees short distances between lectures, practicals and research in the lab. The department is very well equipped in terms of the synthesis, characterisation and the further development of new materials. It provides numerous large-scale equipment units for modern methods of solid-state spectroscopy, material synthesis and material analysis as well as the institute's own helium liquefier for low-temperature experiments.
Special features regarding research activitiesThe research focus at the institute is in the field of condensed matter, and the department is one of the largest institutions active in this field in Germany. In particular there is a centre for electronic correlations and magnetism, which is leading in the coordination of national joint projects on this topic. Further key areas lie in Nanotechnology, Materials Research, Plasma Physics, Statistical Physics as well as Chemical Physics.
Support for foundersThe university offers numerous cooperations with companies in the area and an inventor consultation service through the User Centre for Materials and Environmental Research.
Other special featuresThe transfer point of the institute, the Anwenderzentrum Material- und Umweltforschung (Application Centre for Material and Environmental Research), maintains close contacts with industry and assists in the organisation of work placements. Thanks to this networking, graduates easily find positions in companies in the region. The institute is linked to the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Garching and the German Aerospace Centre in Oberpfaffenhofen via two working groups.
