6/5/2020: Phased return to Research: OSU's Research Office has issued guidelines about a possible phased return to on-campus research at its Keep Researching website. Physics faculty who plan to conduct such research have submitted plans for approval. Such research is opt-in only. They have developed guidelines for research in Weniger Hall that prioritize the health and safety of researchers. The guidelines are here, and your feedback to any member of the committee (listed on the guidelines), is welcomed.
As of 4/4/2020 : Weniger Hall is Closed! Do not enter the building.
Update from the Head in the Spectrometer
The Physics Department is operating remotely.
All Spring courses will be delivered remotely via Zoom and Canvas for the full quarter. Labs will be delivered remotely. Check the Canvas page for your course for details
We are running a reduced Colloquium and Seminar schedule this quarter through Zoom. Due to zoom hijackings, we will only be sending connection information to people who have signed up to receive announcements.
The main office will be working remotely. Please call (541) 737-4631 or email email@example.com instead of visiting in person.
Documents that need signatures should be scanned and emailed to the person who needs to sign them.
If you need assistance from the main office, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Wormhole will be virtually open on the usual schedule - instructors will provide connection information.
Physics students and faculty are well-represented in the College of Science 2020 Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) Awards. These awards provide 11-week employment in the summer for students, though this year, because of closures during the covid-19 pandemic, the research may have to be stretched out over the academic year. This years physics student awardees… Continue reading
Three OSU Physics alums are among 2,046 graduate students nationwide to receive the NSF Graduate Research Fellowships Program award that pays stipend and partial tuition for 3 years. Congratulations to all three! See the Impact article from the College of Science for some more details about other College of Science GRFP recipients. Mirek Brandt (BS… Continue reading
