Society of Physics Students

The Society of Physics Students (SPS) hosted a trivia night coupled with a poster presentation in the UC River Room last month that far surpassed their expectations. The trivia game was emceed by Dr. Robert Marchini and included questions of General Knowledge, Science, and Memphis Trivia. During the half time the students presented a poster session to show the research they had been doing in the Physics department, as well as tables with physics demonstrations. Full Article Link

About Physics

Physics is a broad and complex field that uses mathematical models of nature to explain the nature and behavior of all manner of physical systems from the smallest particles inside the nucleus to the entire universe in which we live.

The Department of Physics has an expert faculty that reflects the diversity of opportunities available within the discipline.

Research areas currently being investigated include astrophysics, solar physics, biomaterials, nanoscience, condensed matter physics, applications of fractional calculus, and molecular computing. Learn More
