formulation of theories or “laws,” which summarize our knowledge of the natural world

Astronomy Image Explorer

The IOP and AAS have launced the Astronomy Image Explorer.  This site provides quick and easy access to hundreds of thousands of images, illustrations, graphs, charts, and videos that have been published in peer-reviewed journals.


Welcome to the Physics Subject Guide!

The study of nature at its most fundamental level offers the opportunity to explore phenomena at all levels – from the world of the atom to the reaches of the universe. In our nationally recognized Physics department, you’ll study the nature of diamonds and semiconductors, the inner workings of the nucleus, and the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in diagnosing disease. You’ll imagine, deduce, and investigate the inner workings of black holes, hot space, chaos, and quantum gravity.

This guide will help point out some useful resources available to you that can assist you in doing your research.
