Graduate Programs & Research in the Department of Physics and Applied Physics at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
The UMass Lowell Physics Department is a leader in nuclear physics, radiation science, terahertz technologies, advanced materials, photonics device fabrication techniques, and biomedical photonics applications.
Our campus is located twenty-five miles northwest of Boston, with a student population of over 18,500. We have 30 full-time faculty, approximately 70 graduate students and over 100 undergraduate majors in the Department of Physics and Applied Physics. The Department has external grant and contract funding of over $10 million per year. Faculty research areas include advanced materials, astronomy and astrophysics, biomedical optics, biophysics, cosmology, medical physics, electromagnetic metamaterials, nanoscience and laser applications, nuclear physics (both fundamental and applied), photonics, plasma physics, quantum information, radiological health physics, soft condensed matter, space physics and terahertz technology. We are very excited about the strong cohort of researchers we have hired in the last few years who are adding new directions to our research strengths.
