Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Physics

Albany High Energy Physics Lab (AHEPL)

Lab Website

Lab's mission statement: To understand the structure of matter in terms of the smallest fragments of matter. To understand the forces that hold the fragments together to form the visible and invisible universe of which we are a part. To understand the role played by matter and forces at the beginning of time. To invent the tools and instruments necessary to answer the questions that arise. To apply the knowledge thus attained for the advancement of human civilization. To teach others what we learn from our quest.

Center for X-Ray Optics

Lab Website

The Center for X-ray Optics was founded in 1991 as a collection of faculty, postdoctoral researchers, graduate and undergraduate students studying the properties and application of x-ray and neutron optics.

Knuth Lab

Lab Website

The lab focuses on several aspects of Information Physics: Foundations of Inference, Quantum Mechanics and Physics, Inquiry, Relevance and Maximum Entropy, and High-Quality Bayesian Data Analysis

Earle Group Research

Lab Website

The Earle group uses high field Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) to study the structure and dynamics of natural and artificial spin probes in systems of biophysical and chemicophysical interest. High field EPR can provide enhanced resolution of structural features analogously to high field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR).
