Rules for the supplementary subject
The doctoral regulations of the PAF provide for a supplementary subject so that knowledge beyond the topic of the doctoral thesis can be acquired during the doctorate. According to the doctoral regulations, the dean decides on the admission of a supplementary subject. To establish a transparent and comprehensible approval process here, there were several rounds of talks with the responsible status groups and the results were laid down in the implementation regulations for doctoral studies and made known to all those responsible for supervision in our faculty. In the interests of fairness and comparability with all doctoral students in our faculty, the regulations listed below are therefore absolutely binding for all doctoral students.
The doctoral regulations of the PAF require proof of knowledge in a supplementary subject to acquire knowledge in a broader area. According to the regulations, the dean decides on the admission of a supplementary subject. In order to establish a transparent and comprehensible approval procedure, after several rounds of talks the results were laid down in the Durchführungsbestimmungen (implementation regulations for the doctorate) pdf, 106 kb · deand all supervisors in our faculty were made aware of them. In the interests of fairness and comparability with all doctoral students in our faculty, the regulations listed below are therefore absolutely binding for all doctoral students.
1. The supplementary subject must be a course for advanced students. This is a special or in-depth lecture for master’s students. It is strongly recommended that approval be obtained from the Dean prior to taking the course.
2. In order to ensure the breadth, courses from the subject area of the doctoral thesis are excluded. The subject area of the doctorate corresponds to one of the four specializations available at the faculty: optics/photonics, materials science/solid state physics, astronomy/astrophysics and gravitational and quantum theory. The assignment of the doctorate to a subject area results from the assignment of the first supervisor. All courses that are listed in the Friedolin course catalog as specialization of this area are therefore excluded. For optics/photonics it should be noted that courses from the M.Sc. Physics with a focus on optics/photonics and M.Sc. Photonics are excluded. It is assumed, that the teachers or the Dean of Studies have made this assignment for good and understandable reasons, and therefore the Dean does not question this assignment.
3. Proof of knowledge of the supplementary subject is provided in a discussion between the doctoral students and the responsible lecturer and fixed in a protocolpdf, 83 kb · de. The requirements for admission as “examiners” are like those for reviewers of a doctoral thesis:
· Authorization for independent supervision of doctoral theses
· Exclusion of conflicts of interest; this includes, among others, belonging to the same university or non-university institute/facility as the doctoral candidate or primary supervisor.
4. According to the doctoral regulations, the council of the faculty deals with objections to the decision of the dean. A corresponding application must be submitted to the council of the faculty.

Completion of the Doctoral Examinational Procedure
After the doctoral degree has been successfully conferred, you are obliged to publish the dissertation and to deliver the required copies to the university library, the Thüringer Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek (ThULB).
Here you find a checklistExternal link for submitting a doctoral dissertation at the ThULB.
Ph. D. students of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy can prepare for the oral examinations according to the Ph. D. regulations within graduate studies.
Over a time period of some terms the faculty offers lectures in the following key areas of research on a regular basis:
- Optics/Laser Physics
- Solid State Physics / Materials Science
- Astronomy /Astrophysics
- Gravitational and Quantum Theory
The VorlesungsverzeichnisExternal link (Friedolin) provides information on the ongoing lectures in the actual term.
Networking between doctoral students
Here you find a mailing list for networking with other Ph.D. students of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy :
Good scientific practice for scientific qualification reports and theses in physics
Ongoing doctoral procedures
The public disputations (defenses) of the doctoral thesis generally take place at 16:15 in the lecture hall 2, Helmholtzweg 5.
