Campbell Hall Replacement (High-Precision Quantum Measurement Laboratory)

University of California, Berkeley

PrevNext

Description

Laboratory and laboratory support space in a building for the Department of Physics. Research to be conducted in the CIPQM will include: the application of atomically-resolved microscopy to observe dynamical processes at the nanoscale; quantum nanomechanics, an emerging discipline focused on the measurement and control of mechanical properties of nanostructures; interferometry with ultracold atoms, with applications ranging from basic research on fundamental physics to ultra-high precision gyroscopes and gravitational field detectors; solid-state magnetometers and amplifiers at the quantum limit, a precision measurement field with many applications in physics, earth exploration and medical devices that sense faint magnetic fields; and advanced optical metrology techniques at the nanoscale. The 10,000-square-foot space will comprise 10 to 15 high-quality modular laboratories that could house researchers from a range of disciplines, including physics, electrical engineering, chemistry and molecular and cell biology.
