Hans von Baeyer says that we all can stop worrying about Schrödinger's Cat. Science's most famous imaginary feline may indeed be dead—or perhaps it's alive. But it is certainly not both.
Physics Dept. Commencement ceremony is May 12 at 2:30 PM on the Small Hall Lawn
Anne Norrick is awarded the 2012 Rolf G. Winter Teaching Award
The gift will benefit athletic scholarships, stadium renovations and other needs.
Chris Monahan is the recipient of the 2013 JSA Postdoctoral Research Grant at the U.S. Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, which will provide $11,000 for his research.
It turns out that the Higgs boson looks exactly like Marc Sher always said it would, and now he's a little bummed.
Theoretical physicist Joshua Erlich can't prove that dark matter exists. Dark chocolate is another matter.
The new dome and its 14-inch computer-controlled telescope will give William & Mary much improved astronomical functionality.
A cadre of William & Mary's physicists was involved in a project that made the Physics World list of the top 10 breakthroughs for 2012.
For the College of William and Mary, PhysCon began bright and early on Wednesday morning as the eight attendees met outside of Small Hall, the College’s physics building.
This past summer, W&M Physics rising senior Patrick King was the inaugural recipient of the first Dorothy Pruitt Babcock Memorial Research Scholarship. This scholarship enabled Patrick to conduct research in theoretical particle physics along with Associate Professor Joshua Erlich.
If the ice cream cones are anything to go by, approximately 200 people attended this year’s PhysicsFest (give or take a few people that couldn’t resist going back for seconds of our fantastic liquid nitrogen ice cream, anyway).
The Special Collections Research Center in William & Mary’s Swem Library has a first edition, 1687 copy of Newton’s masterwork. It was the star attraction among a one-day exhibit of venerable scientific texts in the physics library of Small Hall.
The 2012 recipients of the annual William & Mary Alumni Association awards were honored at a banquet at the William & Mary Alumni House on Sept. 27.
A small collection of rubidium-87 atoms in Seth Aubin's Small Hall lab has reached Bose-Einstein condensation after being chilled to a level near absolute zero.
A William & Mary physicist is featured in a video explaining the latest chapter in the investigation of mysterious, flavor-shifting particles called neutrinos.
By the time you’re reading this, neutrino physicists from around the world will have descended upon Williamsburg for NuFact 2012. This workshop is unique in that it brings theorists, experimentalists and accelerator physicists together with a focus on future experiments, particularly the development of an accelerator called a neutrino factory from which the workshop derives its name.
An international workshop on neutrinos is bringing particle physicists from all over the globe to William & Mary.
Marc Sher, professor of physics at William & Mary, is a "go-to guy" on the Higgs boson.
On the verge of what could be the largest announcement in particle physics in decades, professors focusing on the Higgs boson and beyond the Standard Model weigh in on the Higgs hunt itself and the future of the field.
Zable '37 was a business visionary whose love for the College -- especially Tribe athletics -- never waned. He died of natural causes on Saturday, June 23.
