Research at the Institute of Physics concentrates on four subject areas

  • Optics and Laser Physics
  • Physics of Nanoscale Materials
  • Physics of Particles and Fields
  • Physics of Atmosphere and Ocean

An outstanding role is played by the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 652 “Strong Correlations and Collective Effects in Radiation Fields: Coulomb Systems, Clusters and Particles”, in which new phenomena of the interaction of light with matter are investigated by ca. 40 scientists from Rostock and Greifswald.

Various scientific disciplines merge at the Interdisciplinary Faculty (see also and enter a close, multidisciplinary dialogue. Their intensive co-operation is based on three future-oriented topics, our university’s academic profiling on "Science and Technology of Life, Light and Matter", "Maritime Systems" and "Aging Science and Humanities". The interdisciplinary work in these complex fields will allow an elaboration of new perspectives, contents and technologies.

The research topics of the Department “Science and Technology of Life, Light & Matter - Die neue Rolle von Licht und Molekül in Natur- und Lebenswissenschaften” are in the focus of international research programs. They are characterized by a great complexity: physisists from our institute make essential contributions working together with colleagues from chemistry, catalysis, atmospheric research, engineering sciences, biology, medicine, mathematics, and informatics.

The spectrum of physical research and teaching is extended in a unique way by associated institutes („Institute an der Universität“ - An-Institute) – the Leibniz Institute for Atmospheric Physics e.V. in Kühlungsborn and the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research in Warnemünde. There is no other university in Germany with the combination Physics of Atmosphere and Ocean.
