Our faculty members are internationally recognized physicists at the forefront of their fields.  We explore nature at all length scales, from the subatomic (quarks and gluons) to the macroscopic (black holes and dark energy), and everything in between (atomic and biological systems). Our research groups have strong connections across disciplines and collaborate with the College of Engineering, the College of Health and Human Sciences, the College of Pharmacy, the College of Veterinary Medicine, and the College of Education at Purdue and with scientists at laboratories and universities throughout the world.
