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.

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
