Ph.D. Physics - University of Canterbury 1976

My research concentrates on the growth of materials in thin film form by laser ablation for spintronics applications. The materials are characterized structurally by single crystal x-ray diffraction nad atomic force microscopy. We use a range of magnetic and electric characterization techniques to determine the magnetotransport properties of the materials. Other areas of research are in the combination of high temperature superconductors with ferrites for the development of RADAR.

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.
