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...

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...

String Theory

While few people toss around terms like Astroparticle Physics and Superstring Theory, we've all found ourselves staring out in to space on a starry night wondering what's out there, why it's arranged the way it is, and where it all came from. For some, it simply comes down to strings. This September 2, 2003 New York Times article does a good job of summarizing the history and specifics of...

Institute for Physical Problems Research Group

The Russian Academy of Sciences' Institute for Physical Problems (IPP) explores aspects of low-dimensional magnets, non-linear dynamics of magnetically ordered crystals, and magnetic resonance. Researchers can learn how the ESR spectrometers utilized by the group permit flexibility in their experiments. Students and educators can discover the importance of quasi 1D magnet with ladder structure...

Mesons Violate Bell's Inequality

Peter Rodgers at Physics Web produced this Web news article describing the results of the first test of the Bell's inequality of quantum mechanics in a high-energy particle physics experiment. The Web site reports that when using B mesons the KEK laboratory in Japan found that the inequality was violated by three standard deviations. Students can learn about the basics of Bell's inequality and...
