Theses and participation

At the Chair for Laser Physics you can find topics for any kind of thesis at almost any time. A whole series of Ohm Prizes, which graduates of our chair have received in the past years, shows the high quality of the theses done at the chair. This is certainly also due to the fact that the work is usually closely supervised by older team members such as doctoral candidates and postdocs, since we only offer topics as theses that advance our chair scientifically.

In addition to the Ohm Prizes awarded by the Department of Physics for the best theses, employees of our chair have also won outstanding awards such as the Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society and a whole series of prizes for the best contributions at conferences and workshops. Furthermore, several of the bachelor theses have even resulted in direct publications in very good scientific journals, in which, of course, the bachelor students are listed as authors.

Bachelor theses

It is straight forward to derive smaller and closely supervised bachelor thesis topics from the many projects we are working on. If you are interested, please send an email with your CV, grades and school leaving certificate to Professor Hommelhoff, so that we can see if we can find a topic that fits your strengths. If you mention when you would like to start your work ideally, we have it all together.

Master theses

In the context of master’s theses we often test new processes or develop important experimental components, which is why we also closely supervise this type of thesis and often lead to highly interesting results. Master theses have already led to several results we could publish in the best scientific journals. If you are interested, please send us your CV and your grades overview as well as your bachelor’s and abitur certificate, including a link to the pdf of your bachelor thesis.

Doctoral theses

We aim to complete doctoral theses within three years. This is often not easy with experimental topics, but can be done with the right attidude. If you are therefore highly motivated and interested in a doctoral thesis, please feel free to contact Professor Hommelhoff at any time. Your CV, your grades from high school and links to your bachelor and master thesis are also very helpful here.

Postdoctoral work

If you have already obtained a PhD with very good results, please feel free to contact us at any time to discuss a postdoctoral position in our group.
