Planetamos – Das Physikshow-Musical

The world's first physics show musical returns to the big stage on August 23 and August 24, 2024. In two entertaining hours, the physics show musical offers the audience live music, live singing and lots of humor, providing interesting facts about our blue planet.

Scattering processes in particle accelerators

Professor Claude Duhr is the speaker for a new Research Unit for particle physics which DFG will be funding over the next four years. From the Physikalisches Institut, Priv.-Doz. Dr. Florian Loebbert  and Prof. Dr. Albrecht Klemm are also Principal Investigators in the new project.

Repelling Yet Still Sticking Together

How can a structure hold together if its individual components are actually repelling one another? An international research team has now demonstrated one example of such a highly excited exotic quantum state of matter. Researchers from the University of Bonn played a major role in the study. The findings have now been published in the journal “Nature.” 

Florian Bernlochner elected as new Belle II spokesperson

The international Belle II collaboration has elected Florian Bernlochner, Professor at the Physikalisches Institut of University of Bonn, as its next spokesperson. This role is of central importance to the collaboration. Starting in the summer of 2025, under his leadership, Belle II will prepare for an upgrade and collect data at unprecedented collision rates. Belle II plays a key role in the planned Excellence Cluster "Color meets Flavor".

NEW: Project ProMaster

ProMaster is a pilot study for a extensive, conceptional development of the Bachelor Physik and the Master of Physics. 

CRC/Transregio (TRR) 185 “OSCAR” has been extended for a third funding period

As part of its efforts to strengthen top-level research, the German Research Foundation (DFG) funds a number of consortia known as Collaborative Research Centers (CRCs), some of which are implemented by several universities working together."OSCAR" will also continue to receive funding.

Perturbations simplify the study of “super photons”

Thousands of particles of light can merge into a type of “super photon” under suitable conditions. Physicists call such a state a photon Bose-Einstein condensate. Researchers at the University of Bonn have now shown that this exotic quantum state obeys a fundamental theorem of physics. This finding now allows one to measure properties of photon Bose-Einstein condensates which are usually difficult to access. The study has been published in the journal “Nature Communications.”

Dr. Julian Schmitt Presented with Industrie-Club Award for Quantum Gas Research

Dr. Julian Schmitt from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Bonn has been presented with the Industrie-Club Düsseldorf’s Science Award for 2024 in recognition of his outstanding work studying quantum gases of photons. The accolade is worth €20,000.
