Cross Cutting Research

What is Cross-Cutting Research?

Cross-cutting research at Illinois Physics comprises work that falls outside our seven strategic research areas. This is a research category with great breadth, and it sometimes serves to build bridges to other areas of study, enriching our overall program.

What are we doing in Cross-Cutting Research at Illinois?

Cross-Cutting Research at Illinois Physics includes both fundamental and applied physics. Individual faculty members in this group work on a broad range of problems related to atomic printing, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, and much more. Some members of this group focus on pressing societal issues, including innovative energy-storage technologies and renewable energy resources.
