Physics Research

One of the most important qualities of the Purdue Fort Wayne Department of Physics is the dedication to having our students actively involved in our research.  Each Faculty member maintains their own research program.  In future months, we will expand the descriptions of each faculty member's research program. 

Professor Timothy T. Grove's research is in Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics.  He is also investigating methods of improving student learning of physics.

Dr. Merrell Johnson's research is in the physical properties of biological materials, utilizing techniques ranging from atomic force microscopy to small angle x-ray scattering.

Professor David P. Maloney's research is in Physics Education.

Professor Mark F. Masters' research is in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics; Laser Physics; Applied Physics; and methods of improving student learning of physics.

Dr. Sally Mikhail's research is in the study of pattern formation in fluids, including Rayleigh-Be'nard convection and Taylor-Couette flow.

Dr. Jacob Millspaw's is investigating aerogels, superconductors, and metal films; and methods of improving student learning of physics.

Professor Gang Wang's research is in optical tweezers and optical trapping of small particles.
