Department of Physics


We, in the Department of Physics at the University of Oregon, are committed to this process of creating and disseminating new knowledge, and preserving the knowledge created by previous generations of physicists, through the Humboldtean principle of combining research and teaching. Our roughly 30 faculty members, including one member of the National Academy of Sciences and 14 Fellows of the American Physical Society, are all engaged in research that ranges from very fundamental questions to work that spins off high-technology companies. They instill their excitement about new discoveries in their research in our students, both in the classroom and in the research laboratory, and train the students to become part of the exciting intellectual endeavor we call science.
