Physics Research

Taxonomy Code: TR-6500.6500-670

Programs that conduct research which focuses on the basic principles governing the structure and behavior of matter, the generation and transfer of energy and the interaction of matter and energy. Some physicists use these principles in theoretical areas such as the nature of time and the origin of the universe; others apply their physics knowledge to practical areas such as the development of advanced materials, electronic and optical devices and medical equipment. Scientists working in this area design and perform experiments with lasers, particle accelerators, telescopes, mass spectrometers and other equipment; attempt to discover and explain laws describing the forces of nature such as gravity, electromagnetism and nuclear interactions; and apply physical laws and theories to problems in nuclear energy, electronics, optics, materials, communications, aerospace technology and medical instrumentation.
