JILA was founded in 1962 as a joint institute of CU Boulder and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).  JILA is located at the base of the Rocky Mountains on the University of Colorado Boulder campus in the Duane Physics complex.

JILA's faculty includes two Nobel laureates, Eric Cornell and John Hall, as well as two John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fellows, Margaret Murnane and Ana Maria Rey. JILA's CU members hold faculty appointments in the Departments of Physics; Chemistry and Biochemistry; and Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology as well as in the School of Engineering. NIST’s Quantum Physics Division members hold adjoint faculty appointments at CU in the same departments.

Each year, JILA scientists publish more than 200 original research papers in national and international scientific journals and conference proceedings. The wide-ranging interests of our scientists have made JILA one of the nation's leading research institutes in the physical sciences.
