FROM THE LARGEST TO THE SMALLEST:
THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING IN IT
The areas embraced by UCLA physics research span the range from the well-established disciplines of "big science," e.g. the search for the Higgs boson at the LHC, and frontier plasma science underpinning fusion energy to newly emerging fields such as the physics of neuroscience and quantum science.
In astronomy, UCLA faculty are pioneers in the areas of extra-solar system planets, galactic astronomy, and cosmology. This effort is uniquely enabled by the world-renowned
capabilities in design and construction of infrared instrumentation by our Infrared Laboratory.
A surprising ferromagnetic order in superconductors predicted by Prof. Sudip Chakravarty, then-grad student Angela Kopp, and then-postdoc Amit Ghosal has been found experimentally.
Congratulations to second-year grad student Jessica Pilgram, recent awardee of an NSF GRFP.
UCLA physicists have created the world's best fidelity qubit, the basic element of quantum information, making it easier to build a quantum computer.
