School of Physics and Astronomy


I. General Information

Today the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy offers courses which continue the traditions of Physics at the FSU. They enable the students to work professionally in a broad field, ranging from advanced physical technologies in the areas of optics/photonics or solid state physics and materials science to astronomical research and theoretical physics with emphasis on gravitation, relativity and quantum physics. The University of Jena is one of the few locations in Germany offering courses in astronomy and doing research in this field.

The Faculty of Physics and Astronomy has established many contacts to other scientific institutes in Jena and to the local industries. The Institute of Photonic Technology, the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering, the Thuringian State Observatory at Tautenburg and the Helmholtz Institute Jena are involved in the students' teaching. For example, students can work on their bachelor or master thesis in one of the above mentioned institutes under the supervision of a professor of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy.
