Materials Physics

MSc Materials Physics

This course focuses on the physical properties of materials. It includes advanced solid state physics, lab courses on experimental methods in solid state physics, and specialization in a research subject leading to a Master’s thesis. Courses on mechanical, electrical, and optical properties of selected materials, soft matter physics, biophysics, theoretical and computer physics, or special aspects of materials engineering and chemistry may be chosen. The Master’s thesis is closely connected to the research of the EAM Cluster of Excellence, the interdisciplinary centres for molecular materials and interface-controlled processes (ICMM, ICICP), and to the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (MPL).
