Physical Reference Data

National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Physical Reference Data Web site (last mentioned in the August 16, 1996 Scout Report) provides data on physical constants, ionization, x-ray and gamma-ray, radiation dosimetry, nuclear and condensed matter physics, atomic and molecular spectroscopic data, and more. For example, within the searchable physical constants page, visitors can find...
The Contemporary Physics Education Project

The temporary Physics Education Project is a non-profit organization whose Web site contains materials that present "the current understanding of the fundamental nature of matter and energy, incorporating the major research findings of recent years." Some of the products that the project creates, including educational material and wall charts, are featured on this site with links to other...
Kansas State University Physics Research

The Kansas State University promotes its research in various areas of physics through this website. The materials are divided into six categories: atomic, molecular, and optical physics; cosmology and particle astrophysics; condensed matter physics; high energy physics; interdisciplinary research; and physics education research. Educators can find laser safety rules as well as links to many lab...
