Physics Annual Picnic

Faculty, Staff, Students, Friends & Family
You are invited to our annual picnic. We will have plenty of good food and play lots of games including volleyball, softball, frisbee, corn-hole, etc., etc.
Let’s make this the largest turn-out in the past 13 years!
Clarke Tower Pavilion (alternate site Leutner Pavilion). Clarke Tower is off of Mistletoe Drive by the Mather Park Softball Field.

Physics’ faculty, students play key roles

Faculty, students play key roles in potentially groundbreaking dark matter project
Case Western Reserve physicists are involved in a project with the potential to be at least as huge as this month’s Higgs boson discovery—if not even greater. They are part of a 13-institution team starting the search for “dark matter” nearly a mile below the surface in South Dakota.

“Outstanding Young Researcher” is one of our own

Assistant Professor Xuan Gao is one of two winners of the 2012 International Organization of Chinese Physicists and Astronomers Outstanding Young Researcher Award (MACRONIX PRIZE).
Professor Gao’s citation for the award reads:
“For his experimental contributions to the studies of metal-insulator
transitions in strongly correlated two-dimensional electron systems,
quantum transport phenomena, and device applications of semiconductor
nanowires.”
More information on the award, and a list of past recipients, can be found at:
