The Physics Department offers a wealth of research opportunities to our students. Our faculty conduct research in such fields as superconductivity, computational neuroscience, theoretical atomic physics, and  cryogenic particle detectors. Students are both welcomed and encouraged to participate. We also draw on the unique resources of Silicon Valley to involve our students in exciting, new science. In recent years students have carried out significant research projects at  facilities such as NASA-Ames, IBM-Almaden, Stanford University, and the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory.
