Clean, Quiet & Consistent: design approaches for contemporary physics labs

The July/August edition of Laboratory Design Newsletter includes the editorial  “Clean, Quiet & Consistent: design approaches for contemporary physics labs”.  The article is published as a follow-up to a presentation given with Professor Patrick Irvin of the Pittsburgh Quantum Institute at this year’s Lab Design Conference. While presenting the environmental parameters of contemporary research facilities, questions arose from a crowd mostly consisting of lab designers. The editorial provides answers to questions commonly asked, attempts to clarify environmental parameters and offers current design trends.

Highlights include:

  • Cleanliness and the importance of an unpolluted environment
  • Sound mitigation and the importance of a quiet environment
  • Consistency and the importance of a stable environment
