APS TV and Kansas State University are proud to present a new video on Physics at K-State. Kansas is more often associated with agriculture, tornadoes and empty space than with high-level science and technology, and changing this perception is the central goal of the film. Current cutting-edge physics research at K-State focuses on the areas of Atomic, Molecular and Optical (AMO) physics (here at the J. R. Macdonald Lab) and high-energy physics/cosmology, specifically highlighting the very high level of support by the United States Department of Energy (DOE). Our association with other large-scale scientific facilities is also a highlight.
APS TV is a partnership between the American Physical Society and the international film and broadcasting company WebsEdge. You can find the full WebsEdge Science APS playlist on YouTube.
The full length (05:10) video is also on our own K-State Physics YouTube channel, of course.

Seventy-two Kansas State University faculty members are receiving promotions in rank, with 30 faculty members earning tenure. Among them is our own Vinod Kumarappan. Congrats, Professor Kumarappan!
Vinod develops methods to align and orient small molecules in the gas phase, and to study ultrafast physics in the molecular frame.
