Barnard Hall (formerly the EPS building) houses the departments of Physics and Computer Science. It is also home to the Center for Biofilm Engineering and Microfabrication Lab as well as classrooms, research facilities for graduate and undergraduate students, the Burns Technology Center, and a lecture hall. In addition, Barnard Hall contains Studio 1080.
Constructed in 1997, Barnard Hall takes the place of the old Ryon Lab.
Handicapped accessible from all entrances
Upcoming events in Barnard Hall
2D Spectroscopy of 2D Materials: Deciphering the Quasiparticle Zoo in Atomically Thin Semiconductors
Monday, January 23, 2017, from 4:10pm to 5:00pm
Atomically thin semiconductors provide a new platform for ultrathin nanostructures and devices with novel functionality, unusual band structure, and exceptionally strong light-matter interaction. Opportunities for integrated photonics will be discussed. View Details
Physics Colloquium - Harnessing Quantum Science at the Nanoscale with Engineered Materials
Thursday, January 26, 2017, from 4:30pm to 5:20pm
Quantum science and engineering has led to dramatic conceptual and practical advances in optical technologies, including high-speed quantum cryptography, quantum repeater networks, quantum-enhanced sensing and detection of bioaerosols and toxic materials. View Details
Physics Colloquium - Why is the Solar Corona So Hot?
Friday, January 27, 2017, from 4:10pm to 5:00pm
This fundamental question has challenged space scientists for decades. At temperatures of several million degrees, the corona is hundreds of times hotter than the solar surface. I will review current understanding of coronal heating and offer solutions. View Details
