WELCOME TO MICHIGAN PHYSICS
Over the past decade, physics has undergone spectacular development, with major discoveries across its various sub-fields. Some of these discoveries have become enablers for technological progress, propelling the revolution in telecommunications and whole new industries in medical diagnostics. Other discoveries are more fundamental, offering deeper insights into the workings of Nature, and opening new physical vistas for exploration and application.
