The Department has at its disposal a state-of-the-art optics lab which has produced four cutting-edge astronomical instruments used at Palomar Observatory, the Gemini Observatory and, previously, the AEOS facility in Maui. 

Simulations are performed on the Museum's parallel computing facilityNSF XSEDE, and NASA High-End Computing systems.
