  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The Department 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 institute is optimally equipped in the fields of synthesis, characterisation and the 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 activities
    The research focus in the Institute is in the field of condensed matter. In addition to the Center for Electronic Correlation and Magnetism, other focal points are nanotechnology, materials research and chemical physics. The institute is involved in the r
  • 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. The connections help graduates start their careers in companies in the region. Through two workgroups the institute is connected to the MPI of Plasma Physics 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.
