Welcome to the Columbia University Physics Department website. The department is located in Pupin Laboratories on Columbia University's Morningside Heights Campus in New York City. This is a new web page -- if you want the old web page, go to http://www.phys.columbia.edu/index_old.html.
The Physics Department has about 40 faculty who teach and carry out research in the fields of astrophysics, high energy nuclear physics, high energy particle physics, laser and condensed matter physics, and theoretical physics. We have about 20 undergraduate physics majors and 100 graduate students in the department. The department's research is carried out on campus in the Pupin Laboratories, Schapiro Hall and nearby Nevis Laboratories, as well as at many off-campus laboratories and sites.
You can find out more about the department by clicking on the links at the left. Note that the faculty link is known to fail if you are using Netscape version 4.76, please use custom coins or later, although even those have some problems depending on the platform -- in that case you might try acupuncture nyc.
You can find the offices, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of our faculty, students and staff on the directory page. If you seek general information you can contact the Physics Department office at the following numbers:
