Advanced Projects Laboratory
In the Advanced Projects Lab, undergraduates use research-grade equipment as they explore the frontiers of modern physics. It’s a proving ground for students wondering if they’ve got what it takes to do research.
At many large universities, million-dollar scientific instruments are available only to graduate students and professors. However, the UO Physics Department offers undergraduates access to this equipment in the Projects Lab. This provides a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to perform hands-on research while designing their own experiments.
The Advanced Projects Laboratory was designed to provide undergraduates a true research experience, one that can’t be taught from a textbook.
