Physikalisches Institut of University of Bonn

The Physikalisches Institut was built from 1911 to 1913. Heinrich Kayser, Heinrich Konen, Christian Füchtbauer and Wolfgang Paul, among others, taught here. The Physics Institute conducts research in a wide variety of fields and is also a center for teaching. Students are taught the basics of physics and can expand and deepen their knowledge in further courses of study.

News and Events
Repelling Yet Still Sticking Together

How can a structure hold together if its individual components are actually repelling one another? An international research team has now demonstrated one example of such a highly excited exotic quantum state of matter. Researchers from the University of Bonn played a major role in the study. The findings have now been published in the journal “Nature.”

Florian Bernlochner elected as new Belle II spokesperson

The international Belle II collaboration has elected Florian Bernlochner, Professor at the Physikalisches Institut of University of Bonn, as its next spokesperson. This role is of central importance to the collaboration. Starting in the summer of 2025, under his leadership, Belle II will prepare for an upgrade and collect data at unprecedented collision rates. Belle II plays a key role in the planned Excellence Cluster "Color meets Flavor".

Wolfgang-Paul-Lecture

Wolfgang Paul was professor of physics at Physikalisches Institut of University of Bonn from 1952 to 1993. In remembrance of Wolfgang Paul highly distinguished physicists are regularly invited to give the Wolfgang Paul Lecture at the institute. This lecture series is made possible by the Wolfgang Paul foundation which was generously supported by himself with half of his Nobel Prize money.
