In collaboration with Caltech Optical Observatories, the ET Lab team develops and builds instruments for Caltech's ground-based telescopes such as the 200-inch Hale telescope at Palomar Observatory and the W.M. Keck telescopes at the summit of Mauna Kea (HI). Working on these instruments is an amazing learning experience for students and postdocs. Find out about our most recent projects on this webpage!
