Research at Illinois Physics

Major experimental and theoretical programs range from fundamental to applied research and are externally supported at a level of $29 million annually. In addition to our pre-eminence in traditional physics disciplines, such as condensed matter physics, nuclear physics, high energy physics, and astrophysics, we are increasingly recognized for strong programs in biological physics, mesoscopic physics, computational physics, and the physics of quantum information. Physics research also encompasses interdisciplinary collaborations with other science and engineering departments at Illinois - many also ranked within the top 10 U.S. programs.
