We are delighted to announce that Dr. Mohammed Hassan has been awarded the Young Investigator Research Program grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Of over 290 proposals, Dr. Hassan's was selected for his anticipated research in Imaging the Ultrafast Dynamics in 2D Graphene. The AFOSR awarded close to $13.9 million in grants this year. This amount was split between 31 scientists/ engineers from 24 different universities and businesses around the country. Dr.

We are excited to announce the newly renovated John R Engel Undergraduate Student Lounge. Located in PAS 268, the lounge is the place to be for all Physics undergraduates looking to study, relax, work in-between classes, or just socialize with their fellow majors. Stop on by and take in the new atmosphere!

We would also like to once again thank John Engel for his continued support of the physics department. This would not have been possible without your help.

On August 17th, we held our annual Freshmen Orientation for Physics majors. We are happy to announce that 2018 marks the largest ever class of incoming freshmen with 60 students.

It is very common to take a STEM class and feel like nothing makes sense. There are hundreds of equations in existence, each more obscure than the last. If you’ve ever felt a similar exasperation, and are wondering what lies at the heart of physics, then we hope you’ll appreciate the department’s new Physics Demo display, found currently on exhibit in the lobby of the PAS building.

The Physics department would like to extend our congratulations to Dr. David Sing, a former student from our department. Dr. Sing, who is now a professor at Johns Hopkins University, is a renowned professor in the field of exoplanets, or planets which exist outside of our solar system. Dr. Sing is currently leading the Hubble Space Telescope's largest research program with regards to exoplanets. Using wavelengths from UV to infrared, this study will look to compare 20 known exoplanets.

The Physics Department Spring 2018 Graduation was celebrated with a ceremony and lunch on Thursday, May 10, 2018. The ceremony, held in the Agnese Nelms Haury Lecture Hall of the ENR2 building on the UA campus, began with a welcome speech by Dr. Sumit Mazumdar, Physics Department Chair. Undergraduate degrees were awarded next, followed by the Masters of Science, Professional Science Masters in Medical Physics, and Doctor of Philosophy in Physics.

The University of Arizona scientists have recently joined the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) collaboration. DUNE will be studying neutrinos and its antiparticle, antineutrinos, with the hope of answering the long-standing question of why the universe is matter dominated. DUNE will also be looking for neutrinos from core-collapse supernovae which will provide crucial information about the formation of neutron stars or black holes.

"Wake up Tucson it's your town, get up and get involved!" This is the introduction to Wake Up Tucson on 1030 KVOI, with Chris DeSimone, a local radio station bringing to light different topics in our community. Recently, Professor Stafford was invited to participate on this morning show, discussing various topics from his life history to his recent research.

Most computers use magnetic hard disks to store data. Each bit of information, either "0" or "1", is recorded on magnetic thin films in hard disks. A University of Arizona-led team of physicists has demonstrated an efficient way to control similar magnetic thin films by electric fields.

Many fundamental processes in nature (e.g. photosynthesis, catalysis, metabolism) result from the complex motion of an electron through the potential energy landscape defined by the atomic positions inside the molecule. Prof. Arvinder Sandhu along with graduate student Henry Timmers used extreme ultraviolet, attosecond light bursts to strobe the motion of an electron in a polyatomic molecule and film its coherent evolution near a conical intersection.

Twenty-seven prospective graduate students visited the UA Physics Department this March 29th and 30th. Over these two days, they met faculty and current physics grad students, found out about research opportunities, and joined us for lab tours, including a tour of the University of Arizona’s world renowned Richard F. Caris Mirror Lab. The evening of March 29, the UA Physics Graduate Program hosted a reception and buffet dinner for the visitors at the ENR2 building rooftop patio.

Prof. Rozo was recently named one of 24 Cottrell Scholars by the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA). These awards are given to “outstanding teacher-scholars who are recognized by their scientific communities for the quality and innovation of their research programs and their academic leadership skills.” With his proposal, “Shining a Light on the Dark Energy”, Dr.

This annual event features physics department members presenting various experiments testing the laws of physics to the community, all ages welcome. Witness the dancing flames, speaker balloons, the bed of nails, the flying bear, and much more! This event will take place on Friday, November 17th, 2016 at the Physics and Atmospheric Science building (1118 E. Fourth St. Tucson, AZ 85721), Room 201, from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm.

Following the first-ever detection of a neutron star collision by scientists at LIGO, Assistant Professor Sam Gralla explains how neutron star explosions create and eject precious metals which end up as part of planets like Earth.
