Silicon, Circuits, and the Digital Revolution

This site is the homepage for SCEN103 taught by Professor George H. Watson of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Delaware. It features online classes and lessons, slide shows and additional online resources. Topics discussed include circuits, electronics, semiconductors, and transistors, among many others. Each class presents learning material and exercises to further the...
College Physics for Students of Biology and Chemistry

From Ken Koehler, Associate Professor of Physics at Raymond Walters College, this physics hypertextbook is intended "as a vehicle for students in the biological and chemical sciences, enabling them to understand the physical underpinnings of their later studies." With a focus on the activities of measurement and prediction as they apply to the study of physics, the lessons are intended for serious...
Prospects for the Higgs Discovery at the Tevratron

"Prospects for the Higgs Discovery at the Tevratron," by M. Roco, was presented at the International Europhysics Conference HEP '99. The report discusses the results of "a Fermilab study of the sensitivity for Higgs boson production at the upgraded Tevratron in Run II." One of the main goals of the Run II at the Tevratron is the search for the Higgs boson.
Visual Quantum Mechanics: Online Interactive Programs

The Visual Quantum Mechanics project, from the Physics Education Group of Kansas State University's Department of Physics, develops innovative ways to "introduce quantum physics to high school and college students who do not have a background in modern physics or higher level math." Funded by the National Science Foundation, this resource for educators provides interactive computer visualizations...

Hyperphysics is "a broad-ranging interactive physics exploration environment which is written in HTML with Javascript calculation routines." It was developed by Professor Rod Nave of Georgia State University and is available online as well as on CD-ROM. An excellent resource for physics educators and students, HyperPhysics gives flashcard-like summary pages for a huge array of topics in physics....
Electromagnetic Spectrum

Part of the larger Imagine the Universe educational site, the Electromagnetic Spectrum site is another great resource from NASA. The site gives clear and easy-to-understand explanations, while providing keywords throughout the page that are linked to a dictionary of terms for easy access to further information. Students will enjoy the colorful illustrations accompanying the text, which vertically...
Physics and Astronomy Departments Worldwide Directory

Hosted by, the Physics and Astronomy Departments Worldwide Directory Web site is a great tool for university students, educators, professionals, or anyone needing to get specific contact information from over 1600 departments around the world. The directory is first organized by continent and number of departments, and then listed alphabetically for each country. The United States...
ABC's of Nuclear Science

Produced by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the ABC's of Nuclear Science site gives high school students and perhaps even entry level college students a good general overview of nuclear science. Through descriptions and illustrations, students get to explore nuclear structure; radioactivity; alpha, beta, and gamma decay; half-life; reactions; fusion; fission; cosmic rays; and...
PH2200 University Physics II: Electricity & Magnetism

This Web site is part of an online physics course from Michigan Technological University. Visitors will find a host of original and outside links categorized by topic including electric charge and electric fields, capacitance, current and resistance, magnetic forces, reflection and refraction, and more. The prism animation for example, allows students to adjust the angle and position of a light...
Society of Physics Students

The Web site for this professional association is designed primarily for students, although anyone interested in physics will find it useful. Use of the site is free, but those visitors interested in membership in the Society can join for a nominal yearly fee through collegiate chapters (one does not need to be a student to be a member). The site covers everything from internship and scholarship...
