Welcome to Georgetown Physics! We are a thriving department with strong commitments to both education and research. We have thirteen regular faculty members along with a number of research faculty, post-docs and students. In the department, we have prominent research efforts in Biological Physics, Hard Condensed Matter, Micro and Nano Technologies, Optics and Imaging, Physics Education, Soft Condensed Matter, Statistical Physics and Ultracold Gases.
In the Georgetown tradition, we place a strong emphasis on the undergraduate experience, but in connection with the wider research community here, with graduate student in our novel Industrial Leadership in Physics program as well as many post-docs and visiting scientists. We also have strong connections to local labs such as the Naval Research Laboratory , the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology NIST.
You’ll find much more information about us on this web page. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch, or just stop by the department sometime – our main office is on the fifth floor of the Reiss Science Building.
