Degree Programme Evaluation 2022

On 23 and 24 May, the online surveys on our degree programmes will start; you will receive a link via your student email inbox. Help us to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your degree programme and to improve the quality of studies.  ...more

Computer simulations make turbulent mixing more predictable

Turbulent mixing occurs more often in everyday life than we perhaps realize: when milk is stirred into coffee, when gasoline is distributed in a car engine’s cylinder, or when dust particles are whirled up into the atmosphere. A research team led by Prof. Dr. Michael Wilczek at the University of Bayreuth and the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen has now used computer simulations to show that these processes are less unpredictable than they seem.  ...more

Atomic Terahertz-vibrations solve the enigma of ultrashort soliton molecules

Stable packets of light waves – called optical solitons – are emitted in ultrashort-pulse lasers as a chain of light flashes. These solitons often combine into pairs with very short temporal separation. Introducing atomic vibrations in the terahertz range, researchers at the Universities of Bayreuth and Wrocław have now solved the puzzle of how these temporal links are formed.  ...more

First Ukrainian guest researchers come to the University of Bayreuth

Three of the first scholarships from the Volkswagen Foundation's "Visiting Research Programme for Escaped Ukrainian Academics" are going to the University of Bayreuth: Among others, two researchers from the Institute of Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine in Kyiv, are supported. They are guests at the Chair of Experimental Physics II.  ...more

Bayreuth physicists present theory on the dynamics of many-particle systems

Physicists at the University of Bayreuth are among the international pioneers of power functional theory. This new approach makes it possible for the first time to precisely describe the dynamics of many-particle systems over time. In the "Reviews of Modern Physics", a research team led by Prof. Matthias Schmidt presents the basic features of the theory.  ...more

Exact simulations of environmental influences on quantum systems

Physicists at the University of Bayreuth, in cooperation with partners at the Universities of Edinburgh and St. Andrews, have now succeeded in developing a novel algorithm to simulate and calculate quantum systems and their constant interaction with their environment, which influences their modes of operation in many respects.  ...more

GYPT Championship: Silver medal for students from SFZ at the University of Bayreuth

Two students from the TAO High School Students Research Centre (SFZ) of the University of Bayreuth have won the silver medal at the German Young Physicists' Tournament (GYPT). Tarek Becic from Kronach and Florian Moßner from Weiden impressed the jury with a project on physical motion dynamics.   ...more

From Heinrich Hertz to Terahertz: Ultrafast video camera for electric fields

Today, high-tech applications in optoelectronics work with ultrafast electrical oscillations, reaching frequencies up to the terahertz range. A team from the Universities of Bayreuth and Melbourne has now succeeded in developing a microscope that records videos of these oscillations.  ...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.
