Bachelor thesis at the Department of Physics awarded with sustainability prize

Sarah Spreng was awarded 3rd place in the University of Bayreuth's Sustainability Prize for her Bachelor's thesis. The thesis entitled "Investigation of the adhesion between microplastic particles and cells using microfluidics" was written as part of SFB 1357 on the topic of "Microplastics" in the research group of Professor Dr. Holger Kress (Biological Physics).  ...more

Neue Studie: Regenfälle verursachen Mikroplastik-Transport in die Atmosphäre

New study: Rainfall causes microplastic transport into the atmosphere

Oceans, lakes and rivers often contain a large number of microplastic particles on their surface. Impacting raindrops cause many droplets with an almost equally high concentration of microplastics to be thrown up into the air. When they evaporate in the air, the particles enter the atmosphere.  ...more

Ultrashort flashes of light combined precisely and quickly

Ultrashort flashes of light lasting less than a quadrillionth of a second are fast growing in technological importance. In laser sources, pairs and groups of light flashes can be created instead of individual flashes. Researchers at the Universities of Bayreuth and Constance have now revealed a cause for the stable coupling of ultrashort light flashes and found a way to control their spacing both very precisely and rapidly.  ...more

Machines against the Corona virus?

There has been a cooperation between the GMG Bayreuth and the Chair of Experimental Physics XI for a long time. On Wednesday, 7 July, the time had finally come again: together with Prof. Enders and his team, students from class 8d were able to track down the smallest particles at the nanoscale in a lecture with experiments that was, as always, very entertaining.  ...more

Information regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus SARS-COV-2)

In order to stem the spread of the coronavirus as much as possible and for your protection, the University of Bayreuth has decided to take further steps to reduce public operations. You can always find up-to-date information at https://www.corona.uni-bayreuth.de  ...more

Welcome at the Department of Physics at the University of Bayreuth.

Physics deals with the observation and understanding of all fundamental phenomena in the field of matter and energy. Thus, it forms the basis of all other scientific disciplines, including the life sciences and medicine, and it is the basis of engineering and technology.
