23. Stanford University - Department of Physics
The Physics Department at Stanford University is one of great distinction and has a rich history of innovation. The Stanford graduate school is characterized by a highly flexible approach to graduate education. Graduate students in Physics are allowed to pursue their studies with faculty members in other Departments such as Applied Physics, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center . The brochures for these groups should be reviewed to get a full view of the current research at Stanford. If you need further information, please write directly to the faculty, c/o Department of Physics.

24. UCL - Department of Physics and Astronomy
The Physics and Astronomy Department at UCL is located in the heart of the historical area of Bloomsbury. Scientific research and study has been a strong feature of UCL since its inception in 1826 and the Department is currently one of the top rank Physics departments in the country, and indeed the world.
We have forged an internationally renowned reputation for being at the forefront of world leading research and providing high class teaching. Those joining us can expect to be part of a dynamic community of Physicists and Astronomers whose enthusiasm for science and innovation is exceptional.

25. UCLA - Division of Physical Sciences
     The Division of Physical Sciences under the leadership of Dean Joseph Rudnick, is one of the four academic divisions of the UCLA College of Letters and Sciences. With 200 faculty members in six departments and several research institutes, the Division houses the disciplines of astronomy, atmospheric and oceanic sciences, chemistry and biochemistry, geology, geophysics, physics, planetary and space physics, mathematics and applied mathematics, and statistics, plus many related subspecialties. Its departments offer undergraduate, masters and doctoral degree programs, with a commitment to both undergraduate education and a strong graduate program anchored firmly in the research enterprise.

26. University of Arizona - College of Science
The College of Science brings together globally prominent faculty in disciplines at the core of scientific inquiry and education. One of the largest colleges at the University of Arizona, the College of Science is a nexus of award-winning programs and centers that encourage both independent and collaborative-driven research.

27. University of British Columbia
     Welcome to the Physics and Astronomy Department at the University of British Columbia. We are a "full service" department of faculty, staff and students committed to serving Canada and the province of British Columbia by attracting and training outstanding local, national, and international students, and conducting forefront research that probes the big unsolved questions of life and the universe, and that provides practical solutions to earthly issues that impact the lives of everyone.
     Our undergraduate program offerings include Astronomy, Honours Biophysics, Engineering Physics, Majors Physics and Honours Physics and there are many opportunities for joint degrees with other departments and programs. We currently teach approximately 180 undergraduate Physics and Astronomy students in years 2-4, approximatley 240 Engineering Physics students in years 2-5, and over 3000 first year students destined for other programs. Our Graduate Program includes approximately 175 graduate students (roughly half MSc and half PhD), working on experiments and theory in research fields that include: Applied Physics, Astronomy/Astrophysics, Atomic/Molecular/Optics, Biophysics, Condensed Matter, Cosmology, Gravity, Medical Physics, Sub-atomic.

28. University of California,Berkeley - Department of Physics
     Physics includes a wide variety of disciplines and specializations, ranging from very practical, technology-driven fields to the study of the fundamental laws and structure of the universe. The major fields of study include astrophysics and cosmology; atomic, molecular, and optical physics; condensed matter; experimental particle physics; theoretical high energy physics; and nonlinear dynamics. There are also many fields that cross into other disciplines, such as computational physics, mathematical physics, and biophysics.

29. University of California,Santa Barbara - Department of Physics
     The Department of Physics at UC Santa Barbara has seen exponential growth since its inception in 1944; comprised then of just a small handful of students and faculty interested in pushing the limits of scientific discovery. Today the department is often compared to physics programs at Harvard, Princeton, Berkeley and MIT. Currently housing three Nobel Prize winners, 15 memberships of the National Academies, and a host of award winning faculty, UC Santa Barbara's relatively small Physics Department is now ranked among the top five graduate programs in the Nation. (2010 National Research Rankings)
     The Physics Department is located in Broida Hall, named after Herbert P. Broida, a distinguished early member of the Department who made many contributions to molecular physics, laser spectroscopy and related fields.
     The Physics Department at UC Santa Barbara is steered by a clear mission:
         - Provide a world-class education to its students that will prepare them for a diverse range of professional careers requiring a strong technical background. >> Education
         - Perform cutting-edge research across broad and inter-disciplinary fields.>> Research
         - Share expertise and communicate the excitement of science both locally and globally. >> News & Events
     These goals have led the Department of Physics at UC Santa Barbara from relative obscurity 30 years ago to placement as one of the most innovative and robust programs in the country.

30. University of Cambridge - Department of Physics - Cavendish Laboratory
     The Cavendish Laboratory has an extraordinary history of discovery and innovation in Physics since its opening in 1874 under the direction of James Clerk Maxwell, the University's first Cavendish Professor of Experimental Physics. Up till that time, physics meant theoretical physics and was regarded as the province of the mathematicians. The outstanding experimental contributions of Isaac Newton, Thomas Young and George Gabriel Stokes were all carried out in their colleges. The need for the practical training of scientists and engineers was emphasised by the success of the Great Exhibition of 1851 and the requirements of an industrial society.
