The Department of Physics at Colorado State University is home to 22 faculty members who maintain research programs in Atomic and Molecular Optics physics, Condensed Matter Physics, High-Energy Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics, and Theoretical Physics. In addition to their involvement in world-class research, Department Faculty take pride in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and mentoring students in the research environment. At Colorado State University, a degree in physics is preparation for a dynamic career in a wide range of fields – from engineering to astronomy to nanotechnology to medicine. It is preparation for life as a scientist.
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.
Using lasers, supercooled hydrogen and radio frequency electromagnetic waves, the researchers characterized the magnetic interaction between the proton and electron in a hydrogen atom.
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.
