Condensed Matter Experiment
Condensed matter physics could be said to be the study of the behavior of more than three interacting particles. As such it has a rather large scope and includes most of physics that connects to other sciences and engineering. In many condensed matter areas theorists and experimentalists work closely together in a tight circle of predicting, confirming, discovering and explaining. Broadly defined, CM experimental activity at UW includes nanoscale physics, quantum information, biological physics, energy sciences, and atomic condensates. A number of adjunct faculty in other departments have close links and advise physics graduate students.
