About us

Welcome to the Institute for Experimental Physics at the Faculty for Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics at the University of Innsbruck. We conduct experimental research in many areas of physics, in particular quantum information, spectroscopy, quantum optics, cold atoms, quantum gases, solid state physics, photonics, and superconducting quantum circuits.

Our faculty teaches most of the experimental physics courses and lab courses in the Physics Bachelor, Master, and PhD programs.

We have a long history starting in the year 1742 with the creation of an "armarium" of instruments for physical experiments and observations. Many precious items have been conserved and exhibited on our Museum pages. The highlight is our astronomical clock that was given to the institute in 1776 by empress Maria Theresia.
