Welcome to the Department of Physics at Colorado State University! Physics, the most fundamental of sciences, is the study of motion, matter and energy at scales ranging from the cosmological to subatomic. At CSU, you will receive a practical, hands-on, and individualized education at a leading research institution.

Department Highlights

CSU students attended the SPS Physics Congress

The Little Shop of Physics was invited to do a hands-on science workshop with hundreds of Physics faculty members and undergraduates from around the country at the Society of Physics Students Physics

From spintronics to multipoletronics: How CSU research could allow for big developments in data processing

A CSU professor’s research into using an electron’s spin to carry data could help future researchers develop some big advancements when it comes to data processing speed.

CSU physicists make a precise measurement that bolsters longstanding quantum theory

Using lasers, supercooled hydrogen and radio frequency electromagnetic waves, the researchers characterized the magnetic interaction between the proton and electron in a hydrogen atom.

Collaboration and connection: Building a community in physics

Student groups are a popular way to get involved in university life and meet people with shared interests and experiences. Student groups like Women in Physics are great places to build community and collaboration amongst peers.
