Oberlin's physics building is named for aviation pioneers Orville and Wilbur Wright, whose older sister attended Oberlin and taught them about physics. Research facilities here were renovated in 1993 through a National Science Foundation grant. These include labs equipped for infrared spectroscopy, solar cell characterization, magnetic characterization, x-ray diffraction, radio astronomy, vacuum thin-film deposition, and experiments with radioactive materials. Wright is part of the Science Center complex.
