Physics Colloquium

Every semester we offer our Physics Colloquium. The varied programme is not only interesting for physicists, the different topics and areas are also intended to appeal to other interested parties. In addition to lecturers and scientists from our own faculty, our colloquium also regularly hosts speakers from all over the world.

We cordially invite you to participate in the Physics Colloquium!


The physics colloquium takes place during the lecture period always on Mondays at 12.00 c.t. in the HNB or hybrid as Zoom meeting.
