Lin Hall Dedication

The University of Oklahoma will dedicate Lin Hall on Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018.

Named in recognition of Chun C. Lin, a professor in the OU Homer L. Dodge Department of Physics and Astronomy from 1955 to 1968, the building will be dedicated on the South Oval of the Norman campus. Funded by Lin and the Avenir Foundation, the new academic building will total more than 18,000 square feet of research laboratory space and will provide world-class research space for AMO and CM physics, including 12 laboratories. Lin Hall will be one of only a few buildings in the world to meet the NIST-A requirements on vibrations, temperature and humidity, as well as electromagnetic interference.

Daylong activities are being planned to celebrate the occasion, which will honor Lin’s outstanding scientific legacy begun at the university, as well as the Avenir Foundation’s continued commitment to scientific research. The celebration will begin Saturday morning with a ribbon cutting ceremony in front of Lin Hall followed by a reception and tours of the building, as well as an evening event honoring Chun Lin and the Avenir Foundation.

If you would like to be included on the department’s mailing list to receive information about these events, please send your preferred email address and street address to: cpack@ou.edu.
