  • Special features regarding teaching
    At 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, Chemistry or Materials Sciences. In addition to the basic topics, there are also numerous application-related topics available for selection.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The 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.
  • Support for founders
    The university offers many opportunities for cooperation with companies in the area and an advisory service for inventors through its Application Center for Materials and Environmental Research (AMU).
  • Other special features
    The 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. Through two workgroups the institute is connected to the Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics in Garching, as well as the German Centre for Aerospace and Astronautics (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen and it cooperates closely with the Fraunhofer project group for Functional Lightweight Construction and the DLR Center for Lightweight-Production-Technology.
