The Physics Seminar Series will feature faculty research presentations this semester. Each week, two or more faculty will present their current research, and in some cases, provide laboratory tours of the new research areas in Kreger Hall. Some seminars will be presented by visiting speakers discussing topics like condensed matter and dark matter. Seminars begin at 4:15pm on Wednesdays in 319 Kreger, and refreshments are available starting at 3:45pm outside the Physics Office, 217 Kreger. Seminar Schedule

The Physics Department completed the move to Kreger Hall in August. New spaces provide ample room for using updated teaching methods, better research environments, and study spaces for students.
