Each week, during the semester, the Department of Physics and 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 Fridays in 102 JFB (James Fletcher Building) at 2 p.m. (preceded by light refreshments in 219 JFB at 1:45 p.m.). Learn more.
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.Seminars
are held in HFB 334 at 4 p.m. on Tuesdays. Learn more.
High Energy and Astrophysics Seminar Series (HEAP) are usually held on Thursdays at 4 p.m. in INSCC Auditorium. Learn more.
