Head: G. V. Rogachev

Graduate Advisors: J. Ross (Physics and Applied Physics); L. Macri (Astronomy)

The physics and astronomy curriculum provides classroom and research experience that prepares a graduate student for a career of either research and teaching at a university, or research and development at an industrial or government laboratory. The courses are well suited to graduate students in chemistry, mathematics, geosciences or engineering, as well as those seeking a graduate degree in physics or astronomy.

The faculty members of the department carry out theoretical and experimental research in the following areas: astronomy, atomic and molecular, computational physics, cosmology, high-energy, low-temperature/condensed matter, materials science, nuclear physics, and quantum optics. Laboratories supporting the experimental programs are well-equipped with modern research apparatus. Special support facilities include an astronomical instrumentation laboratory, access to high-performance computing, a variable-energy cyclotron, and many shared campus facilities.
