The Laser Analytics Lab is in the new Science and Engineering Hall of the George Washington University. This facility was opened in January of 2015 and contains more than 500,000 ft2 of space and houses research from the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, The School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of Public Health, and the School of Medicine.
