Advanced Physics Laboratory

The Advanced Laboratory is situated at:
Vor dem Hospitaltore 1, 04103 Leipzig,
2nd floor, rooms 260 to 273

Introductory Meeting

The Introduction to the Advanced Physics Laboratory for Physics students (Bachelor of Siences, IPSP) in the summer semester 2022 will take place on Monday, April 5th, 2022.

The introduction with safety briefing is mandatory prior to the first experiment and begins at 1:30 pm in the Big Lecture Hall (Großer Hörsaal), Linnéstraße 5.

This website presents an overview of all available experiments of the Advanced Physics Laboratory . The Advanced Lab is the link between the Introductory Lab and the almost independent work during the preparation of the master thesis. Besides bringing up a scientific style of working the Advanced Lab shall link and widen the present knowledge. The experimental skills and the way of physical thinking shall be trained also.

The experiments are outlined in such a way that the students investigate fundamental physical phenomena with the appropriate method in order to determine some material parameters or physical constants. For that reason the experimental setups were fundamentally updated in the last years and descriptions of the experiments were made. These descriptions are mostly quite substantial since the necessary knowledge is sometimes not given in the lectures, up to this point of the studies. On the other hand it encourages the private study.


To book an experiment, please come at the specified times in the Advanced Lab.

Write your group number in the list which is always available there at the pinboard.

The descriptions of experiments are available for download. An intensive preparation is essential for a successful experiment.

The experiment starts at 8.30 am and is carried out on 1 day in the lab.

The examination of the experiments have to be done during the regular operation of the advanced lab course.
