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.
Congratulations to Prof. Christoph Niemann for winning the 2020 APS John Dawson Award for Excellence in Plasma Physics
Former UCLA Physics PhD Student, Anne White, has been appointed the Distinguished Professor of Engineering at MIT's School of Engineering.
Congratulations to Prof. Ni Ni and PhD student Chaowei Hu for the fabrication and discovery of the first intrinsic ferromagnetic topological insulator.
New events are coming.
