Physics Research Areas

An important component of the Physics Department at Wake Forest University is the collaboration of undergraduate students, graduate students, research associates, and faculty on various research projects. Research in the WFU Physics Department is concentrated in four main subfields. Within each subfield, projects include a wide variety of approaches, including fundamental, applied, experimental, theoretical, and computational work. If you want to apply to work with faculty in one of these areas as a PhD or MS student, see our application page, and a summary of faculty research interests.
