Professor Hao Zeng and collaborators were featured in the February 2017 issue of Nature for their work on deciphering chemical order/disorder and material properties at the single-atom level. 
Professor Andrea Markelz and collaborators measured how proteins vibrations matter to their function. 
Professor Surajit Sen's group unravels a Long-held Fermi Puzzle Tied to Nonlinear Systems. He discusses the implications in the ScienceNewsline
We welcome Priya Banerjee from the Scripps Institute as new faculty in Biological Physics. He will join us in August. 
Anne Fortman received an 2017 Goldwater Scholarship. Congratulations, Anne! 
Ciaran Williams, Assistant Professor of Physics, has been awarded a prestigious National Science Foundation CAREER award to continue his theoretical work for the CERN Large Hadron Collider. See the coverage in UBNow for more information.
Thanks to a generous donation from Dr. Om Bahethi and Mrs. Saraswati Bahethi, the Department of Physics has given out three Om and Saraswati Bahethi Scholarship for PhD Students, two scholarship for Masters Students, and one Undergraduate Scholarship.
Congratulations to Anne (particle physics) and Tyler (theoretical physics) for winning NSF Graduate Research Fellowships !
Professors Ia Iashvili, Avto Kharchilava and Salvatore Rappoccio, have been awarded a sizable National Science Foundation award to continue their experimental work at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. Their research will search for subtle signatures of Beyond Standard Model physics with data from the CMS detector using advanced methods for identifying rare signals and addressing systematic uncertainties.
