Welcome to the new web site! The site will be undergoing updates/revisions over the next few weeks to make sure the content we want is clearly available. Please note that many of the pages on the old server have been automatically redirected to physics-server.uoregon.edu (our old server). If you have a public web page which is not redirecting, you can temporarily change the url from physics.uoregon.edu to physics-server.uoregon.edu. You can contact Daniel Mundra <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you need help.
Thanks to Daniel and the CASIT crew for leading this effort.
