The Department of Physics at UCF and the Graduate Society of Physics Students (GSPS), with the support of the Outreach Program of the GMAG group at the American Physical Society, present “Physics Youth Scholastic and Instructing Camp for Orlando Scientists” (PhYSICOS), a no-cost summer camp for high school students in the Orlando metropolitan area.
WHO WE ARE…
An amazing team of students, from high school to graduate level, explore the beauty of Physics of nanoscale systems.
What we do…
Single-electron transistors allow to measure electrical current through an individual molecule 1-2 nanometers in size. This and other exciting projects are currently being performed in our labs.
Our scientific reports…
Jim recently published in PRL the observation of the quantum interference of spin tunneling trajectories in a single-molecule magnet of trigonal symmetry for the first time. Take a look at this and other recent papers from our group.
New Nanoscience Minor – Fall 2015
Do you know that the blue and brown colors in butterfly Morpho peleides limpida are not pigments but due to Nature’s remarkable Nanotechnology? Do you want to know why…?
Congratulations, Tyler (our UG collaborator) for this outstanding award!! The Town and Gown scholarship was established at UCF in 1989 by the “Town and Gown Council”. The scholarship is awarded to deserving, non-traditional students. This year, 2015-2016, three awards have been distributed amongst the UCF student body. Town and Gown serves to strengthen the relationships […]

We have our labs in the Physical Science building at UCF. The main lab (where we run most of our low-temperature measurements) is shown in the picture below. It is arranged around a three-dimensional superconducting vector magnet capable of generating magnetic fields up to 8 … Read more...
At del Barco lab we are strongly committed to the education of young students, especially underrepresented groups of the population. UCF at Orlando is an education center with a strong influence on the high school student population in which a significant portion is speaking Spanish. UCF statistics … Read more...
Online support for our introductory Physics laboratories PHY2048L and PHY2049L.After completion of the basic reform of the old laboratories associated to the calculus-based Physics I and II under the support of our NSF Grant, del Barco and Elena Flitsyan have focused their efforts in a … Read more...
