SPS Organizes Inaugural Physics and Astronomy Undergraduate Research Day
Stony Brook's chapter of the Society of Physics Students has organized an Undergraduate
Research Day for the department on Friday, March 31!
Five faculty judges will attend the poster presentations to give feedback to the presenters, as well as to select four students to give a short talk on their research during one of the weekly department colloquiums!
Undergraduate students with physics or astronomy research to share are encouraged to register! Those interested in presenting may register using the QR code on the event flyer, or by using this Google form (Stony Brook e-mail required).
Congratulations to the SPS for organizing such a great opportunity!
Time Projection Chamber Installed in sPHENIX
A state-of-art Time Projection Chamber (TPC) that will be the central tracking system
for the sPHENIX detector that was built at Stony Brook under the leadership of Prof.
Tom Hemmick has been installed today!
It involved many members of the experimental nuclear physics group and the machine shop. On Thursday January 19, the TPC was successfully installed in sPHENIX.
Congratulations to all involved!
The Chair, and the department as a whole, are incredibly proud that such a critical component was built right here at Stony Brook!

Stony Brook Physics Students Win National Recognition
The National Council of Society of Physics Students (SPS) has reviewed all chapter reports and has awarded the Stony Brook University SPS Chapter as a 2021-22 Outstanding Chapter.
The Society of Physics Students (SPS) is a professional association designed for students and membership is open to anyone interested in physics and related fields. SPS operates within the American Institute of Physics (AIP), an umbrella organization for professional physical science societies.

This is a great and well deserved recognition, given to less that 15% of SPS chapters each year.
Congratulations to the SPS leadership! We are very proud of our Stony Brook SPS Chapter.
