Physics Links
Gateway sites
Physics on the Internet List of links to other sites; maintained by PlasmaGate; includes links to data bases and free physics software
Physics Encyclopedia Extensive set of links to Internet resources in various fields of physics
Atomic Physics around the World Links to sites related (sometimes vaguely) to atomic physics, organized by country; maintained by Plasma gate.
Atomic Physics Links Wide-ranging, comprehensive links maintained by Livermore Lab.
Yahoo Physics Links Less carefully screened but exhaustive list of links concerning physics and related topics; use with caution.
About.com physics links Even less carefully screened but even more exhaustive. Some useful stuff, but use with extreme caution.
PhysLink Very extensive reference site of links to on-line resources and information about physics, astronomy, and engineering.
Units & Conversion factors Interactive conversion factory & definitions of units.
Encyclopedia Brittanica A great place to find introductory info about nearly any topic in physics. Well organized, with excellent use of hypertext and graphics (and equations). Also rates academic web sites.
Data bases for atomic & plasma physics  Extensive list of links to mostly specialized data bases maintained by Plasma gate.
NIST physical reference data Terrific source of information about physical constants, conversion factors, and more specialized stuff maintained by the National Institute of Standards & Technology
SUNAMCO Report on line The authority on Symbols, Units, Nomenclature, Atomic Masses and Constants; maintained by IUPAP; note tables of atomic masses and fundamental constants
The Laws List Extremely nifty site containing laws, rules, principles, effects, paradoxes, limits, constants, experiments, & thought-experiments in physics.
Periodic Table on the Internet Excellent resource for data about the elements. Interactive (and printable) periodic table. Created by Mark Winter [University of Sheffield, England]
All About the Elements Absolutely up-to-date info about the elements---includes a 3D periodic table, the Alexander arrangements of the elements, info about new elements, and lots lots more. Awesome.
Reference Desk on the Web Links and downloads for reference data and information on almost every topic you can imagine --- including physics.
