Physics: Research in Physics, Quantum Matter and Optics

Programme Research in Physics, Quantum Matter and Optics

Below you will find the outline for the specialisation progamme Research Quantum Matter and Optics.
With regard to electives you have the option to choose electives from related study programmes. Always consult your Study Advisor Physics for advice.
There are a few electives that will be offered next year (with reservations).These electives can be found in the Course and Examination Regulations available on the menu on the right.

Study Plan

At the start of the Master’s programme, students are required to create a study plan: this plan includes a complete list of planned courses and projects for two subsequent academic years in consultation with the Study Advisor Physics
