Ph.D. Physics - University of California Riverside, 1991

Research Interest includes understanding the electronic, optical and magnetic properties of quantum dots in the range of fifty to a hundred atoms. Our research involves understanding properties of both bare quantum dots, doped quantum dots and quantum dots embedded in different matrices. Other areas of research include quantum wires, nanocatalysis involving magnetic clusters, and role of iron clusters in initiation of growth of single walled carbon nanotubes in reaction chamber.

Keith Jackson

The faculty, staff and students in the dept. of physics conduct research in over 40,000 sq. ft. of space that houses state of the art equipment. The faculty investigators have received nearly $40 M in federal and state funding to support their research activities.

I'd like to invite you to consider the persuit of graduate degrees in physics, particularyly the Ph.D. degree

Dr. Keith Jackson, Vice President of Research and Professor of Physics.


Charles A. Weatherford

The Florida A&M University (FAMU) Dept. of Physics is in the midst of a period of rapid progress. A new Ph.D. program, in addition to our existing B.S. and M.S. programs, in Physics, started in the Fall of 2001.

The research facilities and productivity have expanded at a rapid pace since that time. Undergraduate and graduate student support, including tuition support, is available for qualified students.

Dr. Charles A. Weatherford
Chairman Department of Physics.
