Faculty & Research
The Indiana University - Bloomington Department of Physics is engaged in cutting-edge research at the forefront of the field - from the study of complex biological systems to experiments on the simple yet mysterious neutrino. Our 40 faculty members are leaders of this research in labs within beautiful Swain Hall on the IU-Bloomington campus and at facilities around the world. One theme is constant in all of this research - the importance of graduate student researchers. As a student in our physics department, you will have the opportunity to be a crucial and integral participant in some of the most exciting experiments in the field.
We conduct research in the following subfields. Both theoretical and experimental approaches are pursued in most of these areas.
