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. For further information and to schedule an appointment in the ESC, please follow the link.

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.

Please direct further inquiries or questions to:

Dr. Michael Krieger
