Being more than a laboratory area, the Electronics Laboratory can be used as an Experimental Service Center (ESC). The ESC is a tool to deepen your experimental abilities. The laboratory equipment and PCs with scientific software are available for designing and assembling prototypes within Bachelor, Master, or Ph.D. theses, as well as for laboratory analysis and development of your own projects.

In order to gain access to the ESC, you must participate in the Electronics Laboratory (usually in the fourth semester) or demonstrate sufficient background in electronics.

For information on how to apply for access to the ESC, please follow this link to the homepage of the electronic lab course (in German).

Students may apply for access to the “Physikum” building and the seminar rooms by personally submitting the application form (in German) and showing their FAUcard together with an ID or passport to

Martina Gercke

Room: Room 02.703
Staudtstraße 7 / B2
