The University of Maryland has received a $10.3 million federal grant to build an advanced physics lab.

Rep. Steny Hoyer, Maryland Democrat, said the federal economic stimulus dollars will expand research and create jobs.

The university plans to use the money to build a 21,000-square-foot Laboratory for Advanced Quantum Science. The underground lab space will be part of the Physical Sciences Complex, set for completion in 2013.

Officials said Maryland was among 11 universities and one nonprofit research group to receive the construction grants for new research facilities.
