Physics Faculty Publications

 
The Department of Physics at the University of Dayton offers a vigorous program for both learning and scholarship. Majors are strongly encouraged to become involved in undergraduate research projects, and many such opportunities exist. At both undergraduate and graduate levels, faculty are committed to student success, academic rigor and research excellence. Faculty regularly publish in highly reputable peer-reviewed journals, their research specialties ranging from energy economics and sustainability to electro-optics. This series offers a sampling of physics department faculty research.
