Alumni Club of the Physics Department at the WWU

Do you like to recall your time at the University Physics Department here in Münster? As a former student or former employee, you might very well be interested in what is going on in your department today. We have founded a Physics Alumni Club – a casual way of staying in contact with each other.

If you provide us with your e-mail address (if you do not have one, we can send you information by mail if you like), we will inform you about current events and developments at the department and at the university every now and then. We might also organize a physics alumni meeting at some point or invite you to participate in promoting current physics students.

We have set up a registration form where you can add your name to our distribution list. You can also register for the Alumni Club of the University of Münster. You will be asked about your former department during this registration and if you give your consent in the comment field (“Your message for us:”), your details will be passed on to us. This will allow us to include you in our list also. Of course, we will remove your details from the list again at any time, should you so wish.

If you have any questions or suggestions for our activities or if you wish to register in a completely informal manner, please contact our Alumni Representative (currently Dr. G. F. Hanne, retired professor) via e-mail (

October 2015

Our alumnus Prof. Dr. Klaus Bartschat (Drake University, Des Moines, Iowa, USA) has won the 10. 000 $ Will Allis Award for the Study of Ionized Gases of the American Physical Society. He is the award winner of the year 2016.

We warmly congratulate him on this. For further details see the following links:

By the way, we will be happy to be informed about similar awards or newsworthy activities of our physics alumni and to be able to report on them.
