"What're quantum mechanics?"
"I don't know. People who repair quantums,  I suppose."
    -- (Terry Pratchett, Eric)



The practical classes take place in our 'virtual lab', i.e. Theoretikum (NCDF03/316). Students can borrow a key to the "Theoretikum" in the secretary's office to allow them to work outside of office hours. Additionally, a considerable part of the exercises can be carried out through an external login (via a Java-based SSH Terminal Applets).

Anyone using the virtual laboratory and its facilities must abide by the conditions and terms laid down in the Terms of Service by the official University Board amended by the specific conditions as posted.

Access to the practical course homepage outside the Theoretical Chemistry network is only possible with use of a password. If you are interested in a 'tour' of the virtual laboratory please get in touch with dominik.marx@theochem.ruhr-uni-bochum.de.
