Fire restoration work is expected to continue into late August. 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 contact individual faculty members to request appointments, as many faculty have been relocated during this process.
Please do not cross any caution tapes whilst in the building.

The quantum vacuum takes shape

The concepts of a quantum vacuum and quantum vacuum fluctuations are still not accepted by everyone. However, a group of researchers including Chris Wilson from the Department of Physics and Astronomy have found further evidence that the two concepts are a reality. Through experiments conducted at Chalmers University of Technology, the researchers were able to probe the quantum vacuum fluctuations and not only measure their strength, but also map out their shape them.
