Annual Newsletter - Chicago Physics

Chicago Physics, the annual magazine, will introduce some of our students, postdocs and staff as well as new members of our faculty. We will share with you good news about successes and recognition and also convey the sad news about the passing of members of our community. You will learn about the ongoing research activities in the Department and about events that took place the previous year and that will take place the coming year. We will ship hard copies of every issue to the homes of physics alumni, families and friends. Hard copies of the inaugural issue, Chicago Physics ONE, published in Summer 2017, were shipped to the home addresses available to us. Chicago Physics TWO and Chicago Physics THREE, published in Fall 2018 and 2019 respectively, were shipped as well. Chicago Physics FOUR can be viewed online now. If you have not received anything, please provide your information by clicking "Stay in Touch!" below.

Alums of our undergraduate and graduate programs have had an impact not only on physics, but also on a wide range of other fields such as public policy, education, technology, medicine, and life sciences. Physics undergraduate and graduate students, and postdocs, love to learn about the exciting and rewarding career opportunities open to them by hearing from alumni.
