The Duke Physics Department, circa 1948
The Physics Department of Duke University offers exceptional opportunities
to students working for advanced degrees, who want more individual attention
and personal contacts than is generally possible at larger school.
The University provides nine fellowships and assistantships in physics
carry stipends from $900 to $1200 per year.
A "new" building will be completed early in 1949
There were nine faculty members [Carpenter,
London (Chemistry & Physics),
In addition, the department employed 6 technicians and a
65 years, the faculty have grown to
42 members, the
physical facilities have grown to
four buildings (below), and the Graduate Students'
has grown a bit.
But now we do not have a glassblower.
old Physics Building
was built in 1948 and added onto in 1963. At first it
housed the Physics Department and the library. Later on it became
the Physics the Mathematics building (the library has moved to the main
Duke Library). Of course, the interior has been updated,
and we hope it will be renovated once more in the near future.

The TUNL Building
Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory
is a Department of Energy funded
laboratory with research faculty from three major universities within the
Research Triangle area: Duke University, North Carolina State University,
and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Located on the campus
of Duke University behind the Physics department, TUNL draws additional
collaborators from many universities in the southeast, as well as from
labs and universities across the country and all over the world.

The FEL Building
Duke FEL Laboratory
is housed in a 52,000 square foot facility
with the addition of the 13,000 square foot Keck Life Sciences Research
Laboratory on the campus of Duke University in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel
Hill area of North Carolina. Active areas of research at DFELL include
FEL physics, nuclear physics, materials science, and biological and

The French Building
The $115 million, 280,000-square-foot building, French Family Science Center
(FFSC) was completed in 2006.
It features state-of-the-art research and teaching laboratories
for genomics, biological chemistry, materials science, nanoscience,
physical biology and bioinformatics. The building will bring together
several Arts & Science disciplines under one roof, providing space for
the departments of chemistry and biology, biological anthropology and
anatomy, mathematics and physics.
