"The goal of all of these experiments is to understand
the proton and neutron which are the particles that make up
the nucleus of every atom. The better we understand the
fundamental building blocks of nature the better we can
understand the structure of the universe around us," Dr.
The Department of Physics at ACU offers degrees in
physics, engineering physics, and microelectronics, as well
as a two year pre-engineering program. It is one of less
