SemesterCourse 1Course 2
Fall, odd years310/610 Cosmology354/654 Solid State Physics*
Spring, even years307/607 Biophysics345/645 Quantum Computing
Fall, even years320/620 Biomacromolecules352/652 Physics Optics**
Spring, odd years335/635 Computational Physics

* Undergraduate solid state (354/654) and grad solid state (752) should be in sequence.  This sequence would be best for grad students in solid state.  We’ll teach 354/654 in the Fall and 752 the following Spring.

** Instead of being offered in Fall 2022, 352/652 Optics will also be offered Spring 2023.
