Department Photos


The Department of Physics knows that energy operates in the world of the very small. This image imagines it oversized, with the Chi-O Clock enhanced by the birth of a photon when an electron and positron meet. What remains are a quark and anti-quark releasing a gluon into the ether of time. The arrows symbolize that the positron and anti-quark are traveling back in time, which quantum physics does.
