• In the program, you will see several different tour options.  Before choosing your preference, you can research each location with the following links:

    • LIGO:
      The LIGO Livingston Observatory is 35 miles away from LSU, and hosts a 4km-long interferometric gravitational wave detector and a Science Education Center. People interested in the LIGO tour will meet at 3pm in the Magnolia Room for arranged transportation to the Observatory, arriving at 4pm and leaving at 5:30pm, returning to campus at 6:30pm.

    • Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center:
      The LSU training program in Medical Physics, which offers both an MS and a PhD degree, is run jointly with the MBPCC. These degree programs are accredited and nationally recognized. The clinical training of these programs takes place at MBPCC, and courses are often taught by faculty with dual LSU and MBPCC appointment. 

    • CAMD:
      The Center for Advanced Microstructures and Devices (CAMD) is a state-funded synchrotron radiation research center. CAMD provides x-ray radiation, equipment and technological expertise, thereby supporting strong programs in physics, chemistry, materials science, and geology. 

    • In house labs:
      In-house lab tours can be combined with the MBPCC tour, and with the CAMD tour
