Physics at Louisiana Tech University

The Louisiana Tech Physics program provides the highest possible quality physics education to both physics and non-physics majors. Through innovations in classrooms and in laboratories, we educate students in the highest level of scientific principles, and provide an environment in which all students are exposed to the application of these principles in state of the art research projects at world class research facilities.

The program provides students with an excellent opportunity to gain research experience at the Center for Applied Physics Studies (CAPS) or at the Institute for Micromanufacturing (IfM). Faculty research interests include a broad range of topics in particle and nuclear physics, astrophysics, materials research, nano-scale self-assembly, computational physics, biophysics, and nanobiotechnology. There are several ongoing research projects at CAPS and IfM in association with national and international laboratories. Each of these is a collaborative effort involving top research laboratories at the national and international levels.

The Department of Physics office is located in Carson-Taylor Hall room 316 on the main campus of Louisiana Tech University. Faculty offices are in the Engineering Annex, Carson-Taylor Hall, Bogard Hall, and the Institute for Micromanufacturing.
