Physics Department receives a LA Board of Regents enhancement grant

Physics matters! A group of Loyola Physics faculty, led by  Prof. Armin Kargol, is developing new topics for the introductory physics courses and laboratories, which will show how basic physics concepts are applied in modern technology and scientific research. This project will be based on introducing course modules illustrating recent research and technology topics, classroom demonstrations illustrating fundamental concepts in the context important to students, and laboratory experiments in areas related to modern research and technology. The project targets introductory physics courses for freshmen and sophomores in physics, mathematics, and chemistry, including both lecture courses and laboratory courses.

Prof. Kargol is the Principal Investigator on a $30,000 grant that the Department received from the Louisiana Board of Regents to support this innovative approach to physics curriculum. The grant will fund new computers, data acquisition systems and other equipment for the introductory physics labs and lecture courses.
