Berlin School of Optical Sciences and Quantum Technologies (BOS.QT)
The Berlin School of Optical Sciences and Quantum Technologies (BOS.QT) is a joint Graduate School of the Physics Departments of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU Berlin), the Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin), and Freie Universität Berlin (FU Berlin) in partnership with non-university research institutions and offers an academic training and research environment for acquiring a doctoral degree in natural sciences (Dr. rer. nat.) at one of the participating universities.
The BOS.QT research program focuses on fostering the fundamental scientific understanding of photons and light-matter interaction, breaking new ground in technical implementation, and creating a new generation of expert researchers in advanced optics/photonics and quantum technologies. BOS.QT offers topics from a broad range of basic and applied research in optical sciences, photonics, and quantum technologies. The program includes experimental research, theory, and simulation.
In addition, BOS.QT's PhD education encompasses a study program to provide doctoral students with great flexibility to individually design the content of additional qualifications alongside their actual research projects, ranging from compulsory to elective elements such as soft skill courses and a monthly PhD seminar that leads to a separate BOS.QT certificate upon successful completion.
