Quantum-Master (Course of studies)

What will you learn?

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.

A detailed description of the modules' requirements, contents, lectures and examination rules is given in the module manual.

The examination regulations for the master graduate program are available in English language by this translation assistance

Short profile

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 world and learn from award-winning teachers. Relax by hiking in the Palatinate forest—or taking day trips to great European cities.

Modules

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: QT Quantentechnologien (Quantum Technologies)

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.

  • Table Physik: Advanced Quantum Physics Master
  • Module: MB Vielteilchen-Quantensysteme (Many-Body Quantum Systems)

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.
