Kirchhoff-Institute for Physics

The Kirchhoff Institute for Physics (KIP) is named after a prominent physicist of the 19th Century: Gustav Robert Kirchhoff, who worked in Heidelberg for 21 years. His well-known lectures on experimental and theoretical physics attracted many students. Kirchhoff's ground-breaking research was extraordinarily diverse, spanning electrical, magnetic, optical, elastic, hydrodynamic and thermal processes. His laws for electrical circuits are well-known. At the time he was in Heidelberg, in conjunction with Robert Wilhelm Bunsen, he discovered spectral analysis and its application to solar radiation. In this way, Kirchhoff laid the foundation for modern astrophysics, as well as formulating the laws of thermal radiation, which played a key role in the discovery of quantum physics. The KIP aims to continue in this tradition of diverse scientific research and education.

Physikalisches Kolloquium

23. June 2017 17:00   Organische Elektronik - vom Molekül zur Anwendung

Prof. Dr. Karl Leo, Integrated Center for Applied Physics and Photonic Materials (IAPP) and Institute for Applied Physics, Technische Universität Dresden, Organische Halbleiter eröffnen neuartige Anwendungsmöglichkeiten für flexible, leichte, und umweltreundliche elektronische Bauelemente. Trotz erster Anwendungserfolge, z.B. in OLED-Displays, sind fundamentale Materialeigenschaften nur wenig verstanden. In diesem Vortrag stelle ich die Materialklasse der organischen Halbleiter vor und zeige am Beispiel von organischen Solarzellen, welche Herausforderungen die Materialforschung beinhaltet. more...

Kirchhoff-Institut, INF 227 SR 1.403
Recent experiments with Bose-Einstein condensates of dysprosium [1] and erbium [2] atoms have observed the formation of droplets that can preserve their form, even in the absence of any external confinement [3].
