  • Special features regarding teaching
    Specialisation in Condensed Matter in theory and experiment, reflected in the Bachelor's course through optional complementary subjects, in the Master's course through a high proportion made up by an optional specialisation subject (20 CP): Surfaces and Nanostructures, Soft Matter, Photovoltaics or Materials and Functional Materials; furthermore, Medical Physics is available as a full degree course (B and M) and Computational Physics is firmly anchored in the Bachelor's course in Physics, the Physics courses (Physics (BA and MA), Medical Physics (B and M)) Renewable Energies and Polymer Materials Science (M) have been re-accredited by ACQUIN
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Uni Napoli & Uni Aquila & Uni Palermo, Italien; Uni Groningen & TU Eindhoven, Niederlande; Uni Turku, Finnland; Uni Paris Orsay & Uni Grenoble, Frankreich; Kaunas Uni of Technology, Litauen; Uni del Pais Vasco & Uni Barcelona, Spanien
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Liquid and solid-state NMR spectroscopy centre (800, 600, 3x 400, 200 MHz and low-field NMR); clean room (200 m² class 100, 410 m² class 10,000) with high resolution electron beam lithography, ion beam milling, multifunctional UHV cluster (PLD, organic MBE, magnetron sputtering, electron beam physical vapour deposition), laser interference lithography and other devices; positron spectroscopy using the radiation source ELBE at the Helmholtz Centre Dresden-Rossendorf. Production line for thin-film solar cells. Surface spectroscopy. Depth profiling, electron microscopy and tomography.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    Specialisation in the Physics of Condensed Matter with the fields of Materials and Biosciences, Special Interfaces and Nanostructures, Polymer Physics, Biophysics, Photovoltaics and Materials Science; strong networking in two collaborative research centres dealing with condensed matter and with the Federal Network of Nanostructured Materials as well as with the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems and Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics.
  • Other special features
    Various specialisations which have been specifically strengthened due to the appointment policy in the last 15 years; high level of interaction between theory and experiment; high level of networking due to two Collaborative Research Centres (SFBs) and the Federal Network of Nanostructured Materials; very intensive collaboration with Max-Planck and Fraunhofer Institutes on site, as well as with the local photovoltaic industry; the institute has recently renovated buildings, good infrastructure and modern equipment as well as a large clean room; very favourable supervision ratio between professors and students
