The Florida A&M University (FAMU) Department of Physics is in the midst of a period of rapid progress. A new Ph.D. program, in addition to our existing B.S. and M.S. programs, in Physics, started in the Fall of 2001. The research facilities and productivity have expanded at a rapid pace since that time. The department has a new sixteen inch telescope with internet access installed in the FAMU Observatory atop Jones Hall science building. A new research laboratory was renovated and enlarged in the county Innovation Research Park. The laboratory is comprised of groups who conduct research in plasma, laser, and computational physics. Four new research laboratories have been established in Humphries Research Center on the main FAMU campus were research is done in detector physics, laser based electron acceleration, X-pinch fusion research, and computational atomic, molecular, and condensed matter physics. A new material science laboratory is being established for advanced characterizations.
Undergraduate and graduate student support, including tuition support, is available for qualified students
. We invite students to consider the study of Physics
at Florida A&M University.
