Electronics Design Facility
The Electronics Design Facility (EDF) designs and builds advanced electronics in support of research science and education. The EDF’s professional design team provides expert assistance with electronics design, freeing researchers to focus on scientific innovation.
Scientific Instrument Facility
The Scientific Instrument Facility (SIF) provides precision machining and fabrication of experimental hardware for Boston’s research community. The SIF specializes in the fabrication of all types of experimental hardware, including vacuum chambers, telescopes, positioning tables, electron guns, manipulators, and cryostats.
Computer Research Facility
An extensive network of computational facilities supports the research activities of the department. Centralized Linux servers, workstations, and Windows PCs are available to department faculty, staff, and students. Additional Linux clusters, servers and workstations, as well as many Windows and Mac PCs, are available to research groups. The computer research facility supports a wide range of software applications for physics data collection, analysis, simulation and visualization. For computationally intensive applications, department members have access to supercomputing resources supported through the Center for Computational Science and the Scientific Computing and Visualization group.
