About Us

The Department of Physics offers undergraduate degrees in physics and biophysics, and a doctoral program in physics.

Our research ranges from astrophysics to condensed matter physics and nanoscale materials exploration, to non-linear and complex systems and biological physics with applications for medicine, energy and environmental science. Faculty conducts highly collaborative international research in high-energy physics; accelerator-based experimental nuclear physics; theoretical nuclear and particle physics; explorations of geometric and theoretical physics; and experimental quantum optical physics.
