Information and Computational Physics
Applications include the development of autonomous robotics for exploring space, and providing new understanding of the structure of quantum mechanics, of electronic spectra and of neurological function.
Additionally, the department is growing a focus on biophysics and continues to concentrate on particle physics, where our research ranges from experimental work on the ATLAS experiment at CERN (Profs. Ernst, and Jain) and on the LUX/LZ Dark Matter searches (Profs. Levy and Szydagis) to theoretical studies of string theory.
