MASTER OF SCIENCE IN Advanced Quantum Physics

Quantum physics is at the heart of today's technology. Ever smaller devices scratching the size limits of single atoms will increase the importance of quantum physics for technological applications. In this Master program you will gain theoretical understanding and experimental expertise in state-of-the-art quantum physics with emphasis on atomic molecular and optical physics. The physics department is deeply involved into cutting edge research in this field and you will benefit from a close contact between students and researches and from award-winning teaching expertise. All professors are involved in several collaborative research centers in the field of quantum physics. 

What will you learn? Our Master's course has been composed to convey advanced quantum physics in depth and breadth. It comprises several modules dedicated to specific topics introduced below. Discover the modern science of matter and energy on atomic and sub-atomic scales, at one of the leading German research departments. Gain theoretical understanding and experimental expertise in state-of-the-art techniques and technology. Work with leading researchers from all over the word and learn from award-winning teachers. Relax by hiking in the Palatinate forest—or taking day trips to great European cities.

Module Quantum Technologies: Quantum physics has already become reality in various technological applications, others will follow. This module will convey the basics of quantum technology, the enabling technologies including, for example, quantum optics and photonics. We are convinced that you lear technologies by applying them. Therefore this module is closely linked to our advanced laboratory courses. 

Module Many-Body Quantum Systems: In the quantum world, a many-body system is much more than just the sum of its constitutents. This is a consequence of quantum correlations rendering quantum systems so special. This module will provide the necessary theoretical background as well as experimental examples to describe and understand the fascinating properties of quantum many-body systems. 

Module Laboratory Courses: The step from theoretical understanding to realization of quantum phenomena in cutting edge research is a big step. Our advanced laboratory course will give you the chance to get used to state-of-the-art equipment and techniques in, e.g., quantum optics and photonics. In one- or two-week projects the fundamental methods and techniques of data acquisition, analysis and interpretation are practised so that you can later excel in your own research project. 

Modules Research and Master's Thesis: You want to solve you own quantum problem, see quantum phenomena emerge that nobody has seen before? The research module and Master's thesis will let you join one of our leading theoretical and experimental groups and pursue your research topic under close supervision and in the world-wide network of quantum reearchers.
