Welcome to the Department of Physics!
If you have been anywhere near the Keen Building, you realize that it is undergoing a major facelift, and due to the construction, our students, staff and faculty are experiencing a major diaspora all over the main and southwest campuses until the construction is finished later this spring, and we can all return to our offices. All of this is in the midst of continuing our teaching, research and service activities, the arrival of four new faculty in astrophysics and condensed matter, and the ongoing search for additional nuclear and materials physics hires. As Chair I can say that even with such chaos, the spirit, attitude and energy of our Department is truly amazing.
In viewing this website, you are seeing our ongoing efforts to improve the Physics Home Page which is our portal to the world. We invite your comments and contributions to make it ever more useful to the Department, the University, to alumni, prospective students and the broader community.
Regards from my temporary office in 621 Keen, where even as I type, I can hear the cement drills blasting away!
