Gravitational Physics

Physics Gravity

Participating Faculty


The department has recently begun the development of an experimental program to conduct precision tests of gravity at short length scales. This will enable testing for deviations from Newtonian gravity as part of the search for new physics beyond the Standard Model. In addition to the experimental program, theoretical research includes the development of high-frequency gravity wave sensors, quantum gravity, black hole firewalls, and Planck-scale physics.
