IU Physics research garners recognition in Physical Review Letters.
Late in 2020, the department created the Homer Neal Diversity Student Support Fund in acknowledgement of our department’s past and in support of our future. Our vision for this fund is to provide students from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in Physics with fellowship support to reduce the cost of attending IU and/or facilitate the development of their Physics Identity by covering the expenses of attending conferences.

Senior Research Scientist Daria Zieminska retired at the end of December 2020 after 38 years in the Physics Department
We are excited to announce a new collaboration among Big Ten neuroscientists. Neuroscience, the scientific study of the nervous system, is one of the fastest growing research fields. The scope of scientific activities involved in neuroscience has evolved over time from its roots in anatomy and psychology to include a wide range of efforts in developmental and molecular biology, mathematical modeling and physics.
