Be a part of large-scale research experiments at MAMI, TRIGA or at leading large scale facilities such as synchrotrons and neutron sources or the leading particle research centre CERN. Mainz offers the ideal infrastructure for studying physics. As a student, you benefit from an unusually wide range of research specializations and you can choose amongst more than 50 research groups. Already in the Bachelor Program, you may collaborate with and conduct research at leading international facilities both locally, nationally, and worldwide.
Many research groups offer paid internships which allow you to gain insights into the world of research. On the master and PhD levels, you may benefit from excellent partner institutions such as the Graduate School of Excellence Materials Science in Mainz or the Cluster of Excellence Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter.
The basis of our research is our excellent infrastructure. Starting with the availability of research facilities like coating technology, clean rooms, precision measurement technology, air-conditioned optical laboratories with precision tables and various lasers, climate chambers, helium liquefiers, cryogenics, supra-conducting magnets, central detector and electronics labs, as well as well-equipped workshops with technicians and engineers to our big infrastructure facilities such as:
Several research institutions on campus provide additional infrastructure and conduct research. They fulfill tasks in the fields of research in physics. This includes teaching and the transfer of knowledge as well as studying, information and communication technology.
