Instrument Lab

Our 600 sq ft instrument lab (see below for a picture before things got busy) is located in the basement of the Henry Hinds Laboratory for Geophysical Sciences. This space was completely renovated for our use in 2012. We have outfitted the lab for electronics, cryo-vacuum, and optics work, and we have a number of instrumentation projects in progress. Ultimately we aim to build and integrate complete instruments for large telescopes here.
