Soon, a new age of quantum mechanics and nanoscale physics-based technologies will transform virtually every aspect of our lives, from computing and communication to renewable energy sources and sensors – just like the personal computer, Internet, and artificial intelligence revolutions that came before it.

Faculty in the Department of Physics at Stevens are at the forefront of innovation in the new quantum era. We're making groundbreaking contributions to atomic, molecular and optical physics, photonics technology, quantum optics, quantum information science and quantum engineering – and our academic programs are training the next generation of scientists, engineers, and industry leaders to do the same:
