Research

The Physics Department has a wide range of research opportunities available for both undergraduate and graduate students interested in pursuing research. The topics are very diverse spanning the range from nanoparticles, soft condensed matter research, water filtration, laser and phonon physics, new materials for solar energy conversion, optics and holography, remote sensing, colliding black holes, young sun-like stars, and more, just ask or email one of our faculty.
