Seminars & Events


Each week, during the semester, the Department of Physics & Astronomy hosts prominent scientists from around the country to speak at our colloquium series. This is an excellent opportunity for faculty, students and the local science community to learn about some of the most intriguing topics in the field of physics today. Colloquia are held Thursdays in 102 JFB (James Fletcher Building) at 4:00 pm (preceded by light refreshments in 219 JFB at 3:30).

Condensed Matter Seminar

The field of Condensed Matter Physics helps us understand and develop better LED's, semiconductors, etc. Condensed Matter deals with the physical properties (i.e. electromagnetism and super-conductivity) of matter, especially the more "condensed" matter such as solids and liquids, that exist all around us. The Condensed Matter Seminar Series presents topics of interest to the Condensed Matter & Solid State community.
