The Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (AMO) study path of the Master programme concentrates on the study of the interaction between light and matter on various scales, from atomic to molecular level, how to understand and manipulate atoms, molecules, and light in new ways, that were not possible just a few years ago.
The programme starts with foundations in relevant experimental and data analytical tools (detectors, programming for physicists, statistical methods, ...), and a deepening of selected theoretical concepts. It then offers the students the possibility to dive into the concepts and methods in atomic physics, molecular physics, laser physics and modern X-ray science as well as neighboring relevant areas and technologies such as accelerator physics and quantum chemistry.
The programme represents two years of full time studies (120 credits), out which 30, 45 or 60 credits are allocated to the master thesis project. Within the programme there is a lot of freedom to choose the courses that best suit your interests and your physics profile. There is also room for you to broaden your competence thanks to a large number of facultative and optional courses.
The AMO study path is proposed to guide you towards the corresponding emerging technologies and research, and makes you a good candidate for corresponding jobs or PhD student positions.
With a combination of mandatory, eligible and optional courses you acquire a solid base in analysis of data, experimental physics and experimental methodology. This is complemented by at least one theoretical course. The last phase of the programme consists of the master thesis project. We offer the possibility to carry out long projects, up to one year. Knowledge and skills acquired in the programme find applications in many areas of industry and research.
