Department of Physics

Welcome to the Department of Physics

Physics is a fundamental science that is the basis of all sciences from chemistry, engineering, to medicine. We ask questions such as what is matter made of? The answers we get from our theoretical models and high-energy experiments are applied to study microscopic and macroscopic properties of matter, to diagnose, treat, and manage diseases and disorders, and to study the origin and evolution of the entire universe.
