Ginsburg Center for Quantum Precision Measurement

The Ginsburg Center will include a 4-story main building with office and collaborative spaces, and a seminar pavilion, a multi-purpose space for seminars, lectures, and special events, connected by a breezeway that will provide a pre-event staging area and entrance to both spaces. Unbeknownst to the casual passerby, the above-grade structures will be bolstered by an invisible world below, where much of the cutting-edge quantum and gravity wave research will take place. A subterranean laboratory space will provide necessary vibration and light control, and a tunnel will provide access to the adjacent building.


Research in the Ginsburg Center will include Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) future technology and precision engineering, the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter (IQIM), Condensed Matter/Quantum Theory, and an Atomic, Molecular, and Optical (AMO)-based experiment.


The project is in the design development phase; construction is expected to begin in 2024, with occupancy anticipated for summer 2026.
