High-energy-density physics lets us study and understand how atoms react under extremely high-pressure conditions.
The Laboratory for Laser Energetics is home to the OMEGA laser, the world’s largest university-based laser.
We offer PhD programs with concentrations in high-energy-density physics, plasma physics, and inertial confinement fusion studies.
Rochester leads multi-institutional effort to study “extreme matter”
The University is collaborating with Cornell, Michigan, Idaho State, Iowa, Princeton, and Stanford to develop an instrument called a high amperage driver for extreme states, or HADES, which will allow scientists to produce and study extreme matter. The project is fully supported by a $1.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation.Learn More
