Research Activities of the Department of Physics

Research in the Physics Department of RWTH Aachen is focussed on condensed matter physics and particle physics.  The first area ranges from application in information technology over method development to fundamental studies of quantum systems and includes solid state physics, nano science, quantum information and statistical physics. The second field studies fundamental questions regarding the nature of matter, its elementary constituents and their interaction. Groups in the Physics Department are involved in several international large scale projects and maintain numearouns collaborations with other groups at RWTH, in Germany, and worldwide.
