Professor Rabindra Mohapatra (Physics) was interviewed and extensively quoted in New Scientists magazine, Aug. 20 issue, regarding some recent theories of inflation in an article by a science writer named K. McAlpine. The article is on two theories suggesting that some sparticles (super-symmetric particles) might be components of the yet-to-be discovered inflaton.
Professor Raman Sundrum Joins Department of Physics
Published: Thursday, 15 July 2010 15:11
Professor Raman Sundrum, one of the world's most prominent particle theorists, has joined the University of Maryland as a Professor of Physics and member of our Maryland Center for Fundamental (MCFP) Physics on July 1, 2010. He has made seminal contributions on the phenomenology of possible extra spacetime dimensions as well as numerous major contributions in multiple areas of particle phenomenology. We expect that Professor Sundrum will being fresh ideas and perspectives to the Center.
