There are several areas for our undergraduate and graduate students to research. Our professors are involved in various research projects, which allows you to be well-trained in different areas of physics.

Your research may include:
  • nuclear physics
  • condensed matter
  • statistical and computational physics
  • applied electronics
  • computer applications
  • medical physics

On the graduate level, we’ve had students:

  • study quantum transport in mesoscopic systems, particularly in devices fabricated in semiconductor nanostructures and quantum-dot cellular automata
  • team with the Fermi National Laboratory near Chicago to determine the fundamental quark-gluon "motion"
