1 Quartal 2017 - Foundation stone ceremony at FTD
Foundation stone ceremony for the new Research and Technology Center for Detectorphysics (FTD)
24 November 2016 - Lecture about the Nobel Price in Physics
On November 24, 2016 at 18.15 in the Wolfgang-Paul-Lecture Hall a lecture about this years' nobel price in physics is taking place.
2 November 2016 - Foundation Stone Ceremony FTD
The foundation stone ceremony for the new Research and Technology Center for Detectorphysics (FTD) of the University of Bonn takes place on 2 November 2016 at 10.30.
4. Quartal 2016 - Inflationary quasiparticle creation and thermalization in oscillating Bose-Einstein condensates
ATLAS FSP103 Newsflash June 2016
Reconstruction of individual tau decay products in hadronic tau decays: A gate to the CP-asymmetry measurement
3. Quartal 2016 - Local density of a 2D Fermi-Hubbard atomic gas in an optical lattice potential
2nd Quarter 2016 - Physics Show for Refugees in Bonn
Physics show for refugees in Bonn - On 20 December 2015 physics students performed a physics show for refugees in Bonn here in the Physics Insitute. It was carried out in arabic and english interchanging the two languages. The show was a great success and the refugees liked it a lot.
2nd Quarter 2015 - Plasmonic Waves
Coupled arrays of plasmonic waveguides can be used as a model system to study random media. The transport properties of the plasmon waves are changed by disorder.
4th Quarter 2013 - ATLAS Pixel Detector
This is the innermost layer of the ATLAS pixel detector being installed in May 2014. It is only 3.5 cm away from the interaction point and needs to withstand extreme rates and irradiation doses.
3rd Quarter 2014 - InGrid Detector
The CAST experiment at CERN searches for axions and chameleons, hypothetical particles which are related to dark matter and dark energy. The experiment is now equipped with a new detector (InGrid detector, a gas-filled pixel detector) for soft X-rays which was built by the Physikalisches Institut
2nd Quarter 2014 - DEPFET Matrix
The first large, thin, multi-chip DEPFET (DEpleted P-channel Field Effect Transistor) detector arrived in Bonn for further optimization and characterization. The sensor consists of roughly 92 thousand DEPFET pixels arranged in 192 columns and 480 rows with a pitch of 50 x 75 um, resulting in a total sensitive area of 36.0 x 9.6 mm.
1st Quarter 2014 - Two ERC prize winners
This year the Physics Institute of the University of Bonn succeeded in winning two ERC (European Research Council) projects. In one of the supported projects Markus Cristinziani will investigate the interaction between top quarks and neutral bosons in the search for new physics while Michael Köhl explores new creation mechanisms of superfluidity and superconductivity. Each projected is funded with 2 million Euro.
Lectures to the Nobel prize 2013
The Physics Nobel prize 2013 goes to Francois Englert and Peter Higgs for their prediction of the Higgs-field and the corresponding Higgs particle. On this occasion, the Physical Institute of the University of Bonn invites on Thursday the 17th of October to an informal lecture at the Wolfgang-Paul-Lecture hall, Kreuzbergweg 28 in Bonn. Entrance is free.
University of Bonn participated in the discovery of the Higgs particle
Francois Englert (Brussels) und Peter Higgs (Edinburgh) were awarded with the Nobel prize in Physics 2013 for their theory of how fundamental particles obtain their mass.
4th Quarter 2013 - Wolfgang Paul Symposium
Wolfgang Paul was born on August 10, 1913 in Lorenzkirch, Saxony. On the occasion of his 100th birthday this year, a three day symposium will be held in his memory on November 11 – 13, 2013.
Interview with Prof. Michael Köhl
The career adviser magazine "Staufenbiel Naturwissenschaftler" interviewed Prof. Michael Köhl.
2nd Quarter 2013 - Emergent randomness from strong electronic interactions
In a number of complex materials strong electron interactions induce a metal-to-insulator transition, the so-called Mott-Hubbard transition. Near this 1st-order transition, insulating nanodomains coexist with metallic regions, just like ice cubes can exist in a glass of water.
New Intranet
The PI intranet pages were migrated to Plone.
The ATLAS detector build of 9,517 Lego bricks
Physicists from the University of Bonn build a model of the machine, which discovered the Higgs Boson.
1st Quarter 2013 - Four Electron Neutrino Candidates
