Department Chair: Matthew Wright
Quantum mechanics. Engineering. Optics. Energy. Materials science. The curriculum in the Department of Physics encompasses all aspects of physics, including quantum mechanics, lasers, optics, trace gas detection, holography and alternative energy.
The Adelphi Physics department allows students to experiment in completely modernized laboratory facilities, participate in groundbreaking research under the guidance of faculty, and present results at national conferences.
A physics degree has vast possibilities and can lead to a career as a biophysicist, laserist, meteorologist, optical physicist or any aspect of engineering.
