Physics Department Facilities
The Physics Department has a student lounge (PA 116) where physics majors can study and work together. This room is also used for tutoring.
The Atomic Force Microscope can be used to detect sub-micrometer sized surface features on solids.
The Scanning Electron Microscope can be used to get micrometer sized surface features on samples.
A recently acquired, high quality optics bench and equipment can be used for a variety of purposes, one of which is the essentials of an atom trap.
A Cloud Chamber can be used to view elementary particle motion.
A Computational Cluster is maintained by the department to support all our computing needs.
