About Us


The Physics Department is an exceptionally well-equipped undergraduate department. Our research facilities include a Mossbauer spectroscopy laboratory, an ultra-high vacuum chamber, a 50 kilogauss programmable magnet, an X-ray spectrometer, and a Raman spectrometer.

The undergraduate laboratories include nuclear technology, nuclear magnetic resonance, electronics, electromagnetism, optics, and many other aspects of general physics. The department is equipped with elaborate computer facilities. All PC's are networked to a local physics server, to other servers around the campus, and to the internet.

In addition, graduates in our physics program will be adept at solving problems using techniques that probe the fundamental building blocks of nature and have multiple career opportunities.

Every summer, three to five research assistantships are granted to undergraduates of good academic standing. Each is typically in conjunction with the research of a faculty member.
