These are extraordinary times in physics, with the development of new tools for observing the universe and testing its fundamental laws. Here at Indiana University, we investigate new materials with exotic properties, make use of innovative technologies based on those materials, and gain an emerging ability to control entangled quantum-mechanical systems.
Our faculty and students engage in research that leads discovery in the many areas, both theoretical and applied. We look at the interactions of many bodies as part of condensed matter and material science, study subatomic particle physics, and apply the tools of physics to biological systems. We examine the behavior of many charged particles as part of accelerator physics, and explore astrophysical systems.
