Chemistry and physics together cover a wide variety of disciplines, ranging from the creation of a substance that has never existed, to the study of the fundamental laws and structure of the Universe. Chemistry and physics at Arizona State University is committed, first and foremost, to developing the highest quality programs and research opportunities for students.
ASU faculty in the School of Molecular Sciences and Department of Physics are among the finest researchers, teachers and mentors in the field today, ranked 6th in research impact. The faculty include fellows of prestigious science organizations such as the National Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Physical Society and the American Chemical Society, Regents’ Professors, noted authors and some nationally recognized for research in science education. In addition to outstanding faculty, dedicated staff work to support research and teaching at every level.
ASU faculty and students tackle some of the most challenging chemical physics problems of today, combining theory, spectroscopy, cosmology, nuclear and particle physics, biological physics, synthesis, molecular biology and geochemistry to forge fundamental understandings of the world. We look through the lens of physics, as well as biology, to understand cancer, and toward biological invention and biomimicry to develop advanced materials. Chemistry and physics are at the frontier of breakthrough scientific and technological approaches.
