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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com.
The Wormhole will be virtually open on the usual schedule - instructors will provide connection information.

Undergraduate volunteers from the Department of Physics presented kid-friendly demonstrations last week at the 2020 Family Science Night at Franklin School, Corvallis. The activities and demonstrations focused on mechanical phenomena: Marbles racing down tracks, carts on a frictionless rail, a chain fountain, and weight lifting with pulleys and double pulleys. In addition to mechanics, there… Continue reading
With departmental funding and an SPS travel grant, undergraduate student Acacia Patterson attended PhysCon, the 2019 Physics Congress, in Providence, Rhode Island 11/14-11/16. Over 1000 people attended the conference, which is hosted by the jointly by Sigma Pi Sigma and the Society of Physics Students and has occurred every 4 years since 1928. A group… Continue reading
Physics research isn’t just for Physics majors. Biophysicist Weihong Qiu hosts students from BioHealth Sciences and Biochemistry in his lab as well. BioHealth student Haelyn Epp used her #SUREScience scholarship to work in a biophysics lab on motor proteins. “My scholarship replaced one of my jobs, [and] allowed me to focus on research in a… Continue reading
