Facilities:  APPLICATION TO THE Ph.D PROGRAM IS FREE. Significant financial support is available for graduate students in all programs. Details may be obtained from A wide variety of facilties and programs is available within the department. In addition there are collaborative programs with other departments, including Macromolecular Science, Chemistry, Astronomy, and the Medical School. In astrophysics, for example, experiments are performed to determine the nature of elementary particles dark matter by direct detection using underground detectors, while other experiments are performed to search for high energy gamma rays. Condensed matter experiments include measurements of liquid and solid helium, dielectric, optical, and nonlinear optical properties, thin films, nanoscopic physics, quantum computing, liquid crystals and complex fluids, quatum wells, wires, and dots, ultrafast processes, and superconductivity. The department has a growing presence in biologically related physics, with strong collaborations with our Medical School.
