With its six faculties and its interfaculty centres, it offers a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines and internationally outstanding profile areas, supported by the administration with its services.

Research at the I. Physikalisches Institut combines four equally important methodological pillars: observational astronomy, instrumentation, laboratory astrophysics, and theoretical astrophysics. In each of these areas we are increasingly confronted with very large data sets.
