Phyphox allows you to use the sensors in your phone for your experiments. For example, detect the frequency of a pendulum using the accelerometer or measure the Doppler effect using its microphone.
Export your data in many common formats to analyze it in your favorite software. Save or share the data through any app on your phone.
Control your experiment from any web browser. For example, you can control phyphox from your notebook and download the resulting data directly to your desktop.
You have a specific experiment, that is not included in phyphox? Great! Check out the Wiki and the web-editor to learn how to create your own smartphone experiment.
In 2020 the Ars legendi-faculty award was given to Prof. Heidrun Heinke, Dr. Sebastian Staacks and Prof. Christoph Stampfer for the development of phyphox and its lasting effect for academic teaching and physics classes at school. This award is selected by the Stifterverband, the German Mathematical Society (DMV), the German Physical Society (DPG), the German Chemical Society (GDCh) and the society biology, bio sciences and bio medicine in Germany (VBIO).
In 2019 the phyphox team received the Wilhelm-Westphal teaching award, which was selected and awarded by the AG Physikalische Praktika (workgroup for physics lab courses) of the German Physical Society (DPG) for the first time. Award.
More details can be found on the German website of the MNU.
We are especially happy to find that we have been awarded by the students from our own courses. This confirms that our efforts are appreciated by those for whom phyphox was designed. More details about the award from 2018 can be found on the Fachschaft website (in German).
Phyphox has been created at the 2nd Institute of Physics of the RWTH Aachen University.
