This annual report of 2012/13, highlights an exciting transition as our department prepares to vacate the Andrew and Millikan buildings for a two year sojourn as we continue to work on the final design for the new Millikan Laboratory which will be the home for both Physics and Astronomy and Mathematics for the next 50 years. In addition to the new building, we are excited to host a new member of our department, Janice Hudgings, the new Seeley W. Mudd Professor of Physics, and Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College.
This annual report of 2011/12, represents the ﬁrst year that David Tanenbaum has been chair
of the department. It is also notable that it was the 47th and ﬁnal year for Catalin Mitescu
as a member of the faculty in Physics and Astronomy at Pomona College. In a similar vein,
we have begun the design process for a new Millikan Laboratory which will be the home for
both Mathematics and Physics and Astronomy for the next 50 years in the future.
