University of Wisconsin-Madison Physical Sciences Lab

PSL is a research and development laboratory that provides a range of services including consulting, design, fabrication, and calibration servies in scientific instrumentation. At our facility south of Madison, Wisconsin, which includes state of the art machinery and electronics shops, PSL offers a highly trained staff in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and physics to address the unique needs of research projects of every scale and complexity.

PSL has served as a partner with UW Madison researchers since 1967 and has worked on over 6000 projects. Over time, PSL has broadened its client base to include other public institutions within Wisconsin and out of state, private industry, as well as foreign customers. PSL has also evolved to where it is able to facilitate large-scale design, engineering and fabrication projects such as the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland.

PSL will help to solve your unique research, development, or prototype needs. Partnering with PSL means partnering with experience.
