Practical Course M

25.2.2021: Advanced Practical Courses M in summer term 2021

We plan (hope) that most of the experiments can be carried out in attendance again during the summer term 2021. Of course, special hygiene and distance rules must be observed, which arise from our experiences from the first half of the winter term 20/21. In order to shorten the overall contact times, the previous "Antestat" will  be replaced or supplemented by online preliminary discussions. These will take place a few days before the planned experiment in order to discuss the basics of the respective experiment. For individual experiments and / or student groups it may be necessary that, e.g., only 2 students will be on site and another group member will participate via video. In addition,  the experiments  will be distributed over more days of the week and / or the lecture-free period.

The exact organization of performing the experiments can vary  slightly and will be discussed in the respective online preliminary meeting, which is planed for Monday, 19th of April. Registrations are possible from now until mid of April via the practical course database. All registered students will receive more detailed information about, e.g., the preliminary meeting, the mandatory briefing on safety instructions or other changes via email at the beginning of the lecture period.  If there are open question please contact the organizers  via:

The form to confirm your participation in the briefing on safety instructions is available here in english and in german versions. The declaration of participation in on-site experiments is available here. Please note that you must submit such a declaration of participation for each on-site experiment to the respective supervisor.

This Website is about the experiments in solid state physics of the Advanced Practical Course M. General information about the entire Advanced Practical Course M are located on the

The Advanced Practical Course M consists of the catogories: Atomic Physics, Biophysics, Solid State Physics,  Nuclear Physics and Particle Physics. In general, you will perform 4 experiments in two of these categories and you have to register for each of these categories separately.

In order to ensure a smooth and efficient run of the Advanced Practical Course you are asked to download this more detailed description of the regulations and to follow these instructions throughout the course.

Registrations in groups of 2-3 student are possible and welcome, but nevertheless each student has to register individually. The student who registers first receives a group code, which has to be entered during the registration of the other student(s) in order to join the same group.

The Experiments M2.x are located in different laboratories of the II. Physikalisches Institut. Please, meet your tutors at the entrance of the II. Physikalisches Institut.
