Stanford Nanofabrication Facility

Stanford Nanofabrication Facility

The purpose of the Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF) is to �provide researchers with effective and efficient access to advanced nanofabrication equipment and expertise.� The site serves as a network for researchers, and even provides remote access via a live microscope and webcams, for researchers who cannot access the equipment in person. Although there are fees associated with becoming a labmember (this pertains to researchers who wish to use the lab facilities, or have a technician work on a project for them), some of the still images are made available, and there are a variety of resources on nanofabrication equipment, processes and materials also available for general use. Be sure to check out the �Contact Mask Design Principles Tutorial� in the �Processes� section in order to gain understanding of some of the technical aspects of nanofabrication.
