William & Mary's Patricia Vahle addressed the scientific world on June 8, giving an overview of the latest news on the study of neutrinos.
The College of William & Mary was ready for the transit of Venus, if only the clouds would play nice.
It's been out with the old and in with the new for the physicists in Small Hall.
The neutrinophone has the potential to be used for communication across immense distances— including into outer space.

Aaron Dufour, a double major in Computer Science and Physics, is this year's recipient of the Park Undergraduate Award.
At the Yorktown Elementary School Science Night W&M students and faculty impressed and amazed visitors with a variety of interactive demos organized by Prof. Irina Novikova and Prof. Wouter Deconinck, with the help of the Society of Physics Students.
Assistant professor of physics Enrico Rossi to lecture on creativity and constraint in art and science.
ON A normal day physicists from the MINERvA collaboration based at Fermilab, America’s main particle-physics facilty, near Chicago, study neutrinos in the hope of unlocking the mysteries of the universe. In their spare time, though, they decided to test an idea that is (slightly) more down to Earth.
On the Friday March 2, the last day before spring break, a group of thirteen William & Mary physics students visited the Jefferson Lab accelerator facility in a tour organized by the Society of Physics Students.
NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Feb. 15 - Very few people can claim being the first to see a new state of matter. Sarah Phillips wants to join those select few. Today, Phillips got one step closer to that goal when she was named the recipient of the 2012 JSA Postdoctoral Research Grant at the U.S. Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.
On Feb. 28, the Alpha of Virginia Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa presented awards recognizing the accomplishments of Allison Oldham '13 and Professors Robert Leventhal and Barbara Watkinson.
An international team of physicists has reported the first set of observations detailing important behavior of neutrino oscillation, an accomplishment that is a necessary step to additional experiments intended to answer fundamental questions about the makeup of the universe.
The College of William & Mary made a strong showing at the Seventh Annual Graduate Student Research Forum on Feb. 16 in Charlottesville.
Ari Cukierman is the 2012 recipient of the Thomas Jefferson Prize in Natural Philosophy.
Physics Graduate students Gardner Marshall and Christopher Triola have been awarded the 2011 Rolf G. Winter Memorial Physics Graduate Student Award in recognition of excellence in teaching.

Reinard Primulando, a Ph.D. student in the William & Mary Department of Physics, is a recipient of a Fermilab Fellowship in Theoretical Physics.
A collection of atoms in the basement of Small Hall is a million times colder than outer space. It’s one of the coldest spots in the universe, but it’s not cold enough. Yet.
“The building itself is always part of a physics experiment” says Keith Griffioen, professor and chair of the physics department. And in recent years, he added, Small Hall often was an unwanted part.
