When specialized devices are not commercially available, they have to be developed in house – and that pays off. This was realized recently also by two groups of students and post docs from the 3rd Physics Institute, who went ahead and commercialized their electronics developments.

How to find us
The 3. Physikalisches Institut is located on the campus in Stuttgart-Vaihingen, Pfaffenwaldring 57 (building NWZ II, 6th floor) with excellent transport connections:
Motorway A8 Karlsruhe – München
From the highway junction ‘Stuttgart’ follow routes A81/A831 (direction Vaihingen/Stuttgart), take the 3rd exit ‘Universität’, follow Universitätsstrasse for about 1,2 km. After passing by the green ‘S’ (for S-Bahn = subway) sign, make a right turn into Pfaffenwaldring. The big grey block-shaped building on your right is no 57. Free parking is available on ‘Almandring’, the street to your left.
By public transportation:
(‘Hauptbahnhof’), three subway lines (‘S-Bahn’) are serving the station ‘Universität’:
- S1 – direction Herrenberg
- S2 or S3 (to Vaihingen/Flughafen/ Filderstadt)
They run every 5 – 10 minutes leaving from track 101, and the journey takes approx. 15 minutes.
, take either:
- S2-direction Schorndorf or
- S3-direction Backnang.
Trains depart every 10 – 20 minutes from track 2 and it is an 18-minutes ride.
