Wabash College Physics Advanced Laboratory

Welcome to the Wabash College Advanced Laboratory

Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics (New 2016!)

These projects focus on experiments that utilize either the atomic structure of matter, the properties of molecules, or the properties of light. Most of them use the laser as the primary tool.

Nuclear, Particle, and Astrophysics (New 2016!)

These projects investigate the properties of nuclear reactions, particle physics, and other elementary physics phenomena.

Classical and Condensed Matter Physics (New 2016!)

This collection of projects investigates either the properties of solid-state physics (such as crystals or other matter) or looks at other phenomena that can be explained classically.

Engineering Physics (New 2016!)

These projects are a joint effort to understand some aspect of the physical world, while at the same time, looking for real-world solutions to problems using physics and engineering to find those solutions.
