Happy Holidays from the Physics Department at UC Berkeley!
Although the Department has been incredibly busy this fall semester, nothing can stop our faculty from designing and executing new research experiments. To close 2007, we are very pleased to bring you a few newsworthy successes to read, hear and watch. Please stay in touch and have a prosperous and happy 2008!
