  • Special features regarding teaching
    The study model at the Universität Bielefeld is structured in a unified manner across all faculties. This enables the students to create an individual, inter-disciplinary specialisation. Networking between the Departments of Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Technology promotes an active course of studies beyond subject boundaries.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Uni Aarhus, Dänemark; Uni Jyväskylä, Finnland; Uni Paris Sud, Frankreich; Uni Bergen, Norwegen; Uni Tromsö, Norwegen; Uni Wroclawski, Polen; Uni Complutense de Madrid, Spanien; Nat. Changhua University of Education, Taiwan; Uni Ankara, Türkei; King's College London, England
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    GPU-based cluster computers (500 Tflops); LOFAR station; focussed-ion beam; helium ion microscope; low-temperature lab; high-resolutions widefield microscope; ultra high-resolution transmission electron microscope; UHV scanning electron microscope; ultrafast spectroscopy; Thz Spectroscopy; laser spectroscopy; clean rooms.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    Based on the traditional fields of Physics, the faculty has placed key areas of experimental and theoretical research in the fields of Biophysics, Supramolecular Structures, Nanostructure Physics, Light-Matter-Interaction and Astroparticle Physics & Cosmology. In theoretical Physics, there is further specialisation in the field of Elementary Particle Physics, especially Elementary Particles Matter under the extreme conditions which occur in heavy-ion collisions at the LHC, in the early universe and in Astrophysics.
  • Other special features
    The experimental setup in the basic and advanced practicals are modernised and upgraded; a new work room with 25 computer workstations for training in Computer Science and Computer Applications in Physics (MatLab, LabView, Mathematica) has been established.
