Real Physics LIVE: Friday, May 10, 2013:
It wasn't dead at all on Dead Day in Physics! Over 200 EPISD high school physics students and teachers from Andress, Austin, Bowie, Burgess, El Paso, Franklin, Jefferson, Silva and the Trans Mountain Early College High School. Special thanks to everyone who made this possible: staff, student volunteers and faculty. We really showed a lot of people the kind of warm, vibrant place this is!

5.- The effect of structural conformations and solvent effects in a light-harvesting Carotenoid-diaryl-Porphyrin-C60 (CPC60) molecular triad on the charge transfer excitation energies.
Are you a first or second year science or math major needing something to do in June?
Congratulations to Dr. Chunqiang LiEarlier this month, Dr. Li was invited to give a seminar to the Department of Physics at the University of Arizona, entitled: "Femtosecond laser spectroscopy and microscopy." For more information, click here. The talk was given on 3/8/2013.
Comet Gazing on Saturday and Sunday, March 9th and 10th, 2013
Francisco "Paco" Carreto, who lectures for both UTEP Physics and EPCC, has organized "Comet Gazing" on the west-facing observation parking lot near the top of Transmountain. This begins at 6:30 pm on Saturday and at 7:30 pm on Sunday. See slides above for a photo of the comet and detailed viewing instructions.
Congratulations to our Master's Students for acceptance into Ph.D. programs!
Lidens Cheng, Massoud Mollaee, and Judith Rivera have each been accepted into Ph.D. programs! Lidens will be attending the University of Utah for a Ph.D. in Physics. Massoud will be attending the University of Arizona for a Ph.D. in Physics. Judith has been accepted into a combined Biomedical Engineering program at the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State. She has also been accepted into a Medical Physics Ph.D. program at Purdue and is interviewing for a Biomedical Engineering Ph.D. position at Tufts. Hearty congratulations to all of you!
Amazing Department Seminar on Friday, March 1, 2013
We were very fortunate to have Dr. Johann Rafelski of the University of Arizona present: COMPACT ULTRA DENSE OBJECT (CUDO) IMPACTS. The topic of this talk may revolutionize our understanding of meteorite and comet impacts. Click for more details.
