The main stairwell and office wing on both second and third floors of the Physics building will be closed until necessary repairs to the main stairwell are completed.
Administrative offices have been relocated to PHY 345.
Please do not cross any caution tapes whilst in the building.

In order to properly clean rooms and buildings due to fire damage, the following classes and midterms (listed by subject and number) being held up to June 15 have been temporarily relocated. To see if your course/midterm has been impacted please visit the Registrar's Temporary Relocations page.

Researchers in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) recorded an interaction between light and matter 10 times larger than previously seen. The strength of the interaction between photons and a qubit was so large that it opens the door to a realm of physics and applications unattainable until now.
