Physics on Campus Garching

At the Physics Department of TUM School of Natural Sciences, scientists conduct research on current and exciting topics in physics, »from the smallest to infinity« because physics gives us the answers to questions about the smallest and biggest systems in nature: from elementary particle all the way to the cosmos.

What does matter consist of? What keeps matter and our whole world together? Does it make sense to ask for the beginning of time? What is »Dark Energy«? Under which rules our world does move? Everybody looking for the fundamental correlations in nature has to deal with physics. Physics is the fundamental science about the rules of nature. Physics findings about our world are broadening our horizon day in, day out and are influencing our living vastly.
