The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Northern Colorado provides students a complete and rigorous undergraduate education in physics. We are a dedicated faculty that is passionate about teaching and we are committed to the meaningful involvement of undergraduates in research. With small class sizes and varied research opportunities, we offer a unique learning opportunity for students interested in the natural sciences.
UNC Physics teamed up with CU-Boulder, publishing their recent work on "Controlling Nonsequential Double Ionization in Two-Color Circularly Polarized Femtosecond Laser Fields" in Physical Review Letters.
