About the Lab

Main content start

The Ginzton Laboratory is an interdisciplinary research lab that explores the most exciting and productive areas at the overlap between engineering and the sciences.

The combination of science and engineering gives new concepts, understanding, and rigor from science, the stimulus of challenging and important problems from engineering, and the depth of engineering technology to enable advanced scientific experiments.

The interdisciplinary environment provides educated and intellectually flexible graduates, well prepared for the evolving modern workplace, and an opportunity for true intellectual entrepreneurship in combining the best ideas and technologies from different fields for new inventions and advances.

Strong opportunities come from the overlap of three scientific and engineering fields - quantum science and engineering, photonic science and engineering, and nanoscience and engineering. These are embedded in an environment that encourages and explores applications from other fields, such as sensing, communications, information processing, biology and medicine, energy, and the environment.
