Welcome to the Alemán Lab.  We are an experimental physics group working loosely within the boundaries of condensed matter; our interests range from micrometer and nanometer-scale optical, mechanical, and electronic systems to spin in the solid-state (spintronics) and materials science.  It is our mission to use physics as a platform to unravel the mysteries of the universe and to develop new methods, knowledge, or technologies that find useful and beneficial applications in our world.

News:  The renovation of our new lab is under way!  Here are some pictures of the current space before during demolition and construction.
