UCA provides a balanced program for students. We are large enough to provide a variety of opportunities. You can work with faculty in physical acoustics, bio-physics, observational astronomy, astro-physics, physics education, computational physics, or general relativity. UCA is still small enough that the faculty get to know the students.
As a sample of what you can accomplish here at UCA, below are a few of the student poster titles from the March 2014 CNSM Poster Symposium.
Resonance Lab for High School Students
Synchronization Limits of Chaotic Circuits
Determining Black Hole Mass of Active Galactic Nuclei Using FWHM of the Hβ Emission Line and Luminosity Relations
Acoustic Properties of NASA Flight-Approved Materials and other Testable Samples
The focus of the faculty in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UCA is educating undergraduate physics majors. Your success is our main goal.
The Latest SPS Google Hangout Seminar
Mineral Physics Seminar w/ Dr Abby Kavner
Dr. Abby Kavner is a mineral physics research scientist and professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her seminar will introduce the field to undergraduate physics / chemistry majors. Please join us!
The UCA Chapter of the Society of Physics Students is sponsoring talks by authors from Physics Today in Google Hangouts. The UCA SPS Chapter is partnering with the UCA Foundation, the National Society of Physics Students, and Physics Today Magazine to accomplish this. The first presentation was from Dr. Jane Kondev based on his article titled "Bacterial decision making," in the February 2014 edition of Physics Today. This is an excellent example of the applications of physics in other disciplines.
All UCA SPS Google Hangouts are posted in the UCA SPS Channel on YouTube. Be sure to subscribe to stay current. Watch for more of the videos in the future. A schedule of future UCA SPS - Physics Today talks will be posted soon.
