Matthias Schott starts a new research group at the Physikalisches Institut

The new research group of Matthias Schott works on questions of experimental particle physics, in particular on precision measurements of electroweak gauge bosons, studies of non-perturbative effects of QCD, and the search for axion-like particles.

Joining the PanEDM collaboration

Why does the Universe contain matter? And where did all that antimatter go? These very fundamental questions are related to massive CP violation, and miniscule charge deformations in elementary particles (called electric dipole moments, EDMs) might be an approach to shed some light on these mysteries.

Inauguration of the ring laser gyroscopes

Prof. Dr. Simon Stellmer's Quantum Metrology research group celebrates the inauguration of the ring laser experiments on Thursday, February 1 from 13:00.

Christmas Physics Show 2023

Physics professor Scrooginger doesn't think much of other people: Colleagues are ungrateful, doctoral students are lazy and students are stupid. So what should Scrooginger think of all the ghosts who appear with physics experiments just before Christmas?

The new show "Eine physikalische Weihnachtsgeschichte" ("A physical Christmas story") will be performed on December 21 at 5:30 pm in the Wolfgang-Paul lecture hall in German. Registration is open.

Snapshots with ultra-short laser pulses

This December, Anne L'Huillier, Pierre Agostini and Ferenc Krausz will receive the 2023 Nobel Prize in Physics “for experimental methods that generate attosecond pulses of light for the study of electron dynamics in matter”. On this occasion, the Physikwerkstatt Rheinland invites to a lecture for the general public on Wednesday, December 13, 7:00 p.m. in the Wolfgang-Paul-Hörsaal, Kreuzbergweg 28 in Bonn. Prof. Dr. Michael Köhl from the Physikalisches Institut will be speaking. Admission is free. Registration is not required. The lecture will be held in German.

The Week of the Particle World at the University of Bonn 2023

In the week from November 6 to 12, 2023, research institutions and universities across Germany opened their doors to give interested visitors of all ages an insight into the fascinating world of the physics of the smallest particles. The University of Bonn also took part in this Germany-wide event as part of the Netzwerk Teilchenwelt and offered a varied program consisting of a 3-day particle physics camp for pupils in the Detector Physics Research and Technology Center and a film evening followed by a panel discussion for the general public in the Wolfgang Paul Lecture Hall.

Bonn Physics Colloquium: Where Physics and Math collide

On Friday, November 17, 2023, we had the enormous pleasure of hosting Grant Sanderson, author of the mathematics youtube channel 3blue1brown in the Bonn Physics Colloquium following a suggestion by the student council.

High-Tech Equipment to Detect the Tiniest Existing Particles

New high-tech measurement methods are required to detect new phenomena sought after in particle physics. The University of Bonn Research and Technology Center for Detector Physics (FTD), thanks to its research groups, is a leading developer of such detector technology, employed at research institutions around the world. A ceremony was held for operational start-up of the scientific equipment, attended by numerous high-profile guests.
