VPR colloquium-Physics at CSU: Neutrinos to Nano Science
The 2012 Research Colloquium, Physics at CSU: Neutrinos to Nano Science, involves CSU researchers and students from multiple colleges and several departments.
Research in physics at Colorado State University includes the study of purely fundamental forces and particles and applied work such as particle beams and radiation health and therapy. The work spans a vast range of scales in energy and distance.
Study of neutrino properties and "flavor oscillations" is at the point-like length scale, while other projects by CSU researchers detect x-rays and particles from galaxies hundreds of millions of light-years from Earth.
Nano-science at CSU includes research in magnetics and new materials as well as ground work to realize a quantum computer, which uses optical-magnetic techniques to manipulate single atoms. CSU researchers are perfecting solar cells and their production, studying the interactions between the atmosphere and the oceans and climate, while others are searching for the elusive dark matter.
