Applied Physics Journal Club

The applied physics journal club is a venue for discussing current papers. We meet on Tuesdays in EQuad J401 at 12:30pm. Lunch is served. Please join our listserv to vote for, and be notified of, each week's paper. This can be done by either: 

1) sending an email to with this content (and only this content) in the subject line and body:


2) emailing Chris Phenicie at
