We are a growing, internationally recognized department with strong research and academic programs. Our well-published faculty members lead research projects funded by the federal government and industry. Our strengths are in atomic & molecular physics and experimental & theoretical condensed matter physics. We provide excellence in research and teaching, and connections to industry while maintaining a friendly work environment. Our cutting-edge facilities include instruments for isotopic laser spectroscopy, excimer physics, advanced magnetic resonance techniques, surface physics, and state-of-the-art supercomputers. Interdisciplinary research is available in collaborations with faculty members of Rutgers-New Brunswick, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences and the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
How You Will Learn
The applied physics program is offered jointly by the physics departments at Rutgers University-Newark and the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). The program in physics is designed to enable a major to graduate with with a broad background in physics and, at the same time, to relate that background to work in many high-technology industries, such as microelectronics, laser technology, and systems design/control.
On a competitive basis, interested and qualified students will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing research within the department and in undergraduate research programs organized or sponsored by the American Institute of Physics, the National Science Foundation.
