Geschichte der Physik an der Universität Heidelberg

More than 600 years of physics and astronomy at the University of Heidelberg: From the late middle ages to the present times, from the study of Aristotelian physics to experiments at the accelerators in Geneva. The university experienced ups and downs, until its physics faculty finally became the largest one in Germany. During the Thirty Years' War, the university was closed, and during the times of National Socialism, Heidelberg became the centre of “German physics”. Scientific highlights were the deciphering of the spectra of star light by Bunsen und Kirchhoff and the discovery of the nuclear shell model by Jensen, who won the Nobel prize.

Joachim Heintze (deceased 2012) was a professor for experimental particle physics at Heidelberg University from 1964 to 1991.

Maarten DeKieviet is a lecturer and academic director at the Institute of Physics of Heidelberg University.

Jörg Hüfner was a professor for theoretical nuclear physics at Heidelberg University from 1973 to 2003.
