Physics

Physics is about understanding the world around us, from the smallest elementary particles to the entire universe. How can we tame light? How can we design a material, atom by atom? We can use our knowledge to develop eco-friendly technologies, better medicines, stronger materials, supercomputers, and inexpensive catalysts.
