Ph.D. in Physics - UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) 1992

My group performs research in plasma physics, with emphasis on the mutual interactions among lasers, plasmas and particle beams. In our research laboratory, are studying laser generated relativistic plasma waves, which have applications to advanced acceleration techniques such as plasma wave accelerators and novel coherent radiation schemes.

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.
