Most of our undergraduate majors participate in Undergraduate Research for sometime during their academic program. Undergraduate research projects have included:
  • High-energy physics detector development, testing, and assembly
  • Creation and study of novel magnetic materials useful in next-generation information storage and computer architecture
  • Development of spectroscopy systems for lasers used in sensitive measurements of atoms and trapped ions
  • Simulations of magnetic systems to uncover new physics
  • and more …
Undergraduate students have been co-authors on scientific publications and presented at scientific conferences.
