  • In June 2020, astrophysicists in the International LIGO-Virgo Collaboration discovered that there had been a collision between two objects in deep space. One of the objects was a massive black hole and the other was either the lightest-known black hole or the heaviest-known neutron star. Ryan Hickox, professor of physics and astronomy, talks about the discovery and its implications for the field of astrophysics. See the video...

  • The Dartmouth department of Physics and Astronomy is outraged by the killing of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, and by the pattern of violence against Black Americans and the long history of systemic racism they represent. We say, unequivocally, that Black lives matter. The Department recognizes our responsibility to combat the racism that continues to be a problem in academia, including the fields of Physics and Astronomy.

    We support the...

  • Dartmouth PhD students Linta Joseph and Ethan Williams both from the Ramanthan Lab were awarded NSF-sponsored QISE-NET awards this year. QISE-NET award recognizes a triplet of graduate student, his/her adviser and a mentor from industry. Linta will be working with IBM Q while Ethan will be working with the National High Field Magnet Lab. Congratulations to Linta, Ethan and Prof. Ramanthan.

  • Outreach effort by Dartmouth's quantum information science researchers has resulted in a new online teaching tool.  The beginner-level quantum education tool is aimed at making quantum ore accessible to novices.  The pilot program at at Hanover High School lasted two weeks and provided valuable feedback to Professor James Whitfield and his group's efforts to improve quantum education.

  • NASA’s CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) has annouced the next round of candidates for CubeSat space missions. Among those selected was Dartmouth's CubeSat project: Realistic Electron Atmospheric Loss (REAL)​​.  REAL is a scientific investigation mission designed to characterize the loss of particles from Earth’s Van Allen radiation belts. REAL will carry an energetic particle instrument that is sensitive to...
