Physics Research at Greifswald

At the Institute of Physics eleven professores are doing research on the following topics.

Four further professors are working at the Leibniz-Instiute and at the Max-Planck-Institute.


Students can find the best conditions at the Institute of Physics. Relatively small group sizes ensure excellent support during the Studies.
The modern building at the science campus offers outstanding conditions for an intensive study - close to research.

In addition to traditional Physics courses (Bachelor and Master of Science), the Institute of Physics is also steering the Programme in Environmental Sciences (BSc), an interdisciplinary study of physics and chemistry, ecology, microbiology, geology and mathematics, supplemented by events of laws and economics.

Associated institutes

Physics in Greifswald developed as a center of gas discharge- and plasma physics, with the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP Greifswald) and the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP), hosting the Wendelstein 7-X stellarator experiment. 


Physics has been taught in Greifswald since the foundation of the university in 1456. Famous researchers as Gustav Mie (Mie-Scatering) and Johannes Stark (Stark-Effect, Noble Prize 1919) researched in Greifswald. more...
