Integrated Nanosystems Research Facility


The BION is back to the 24hr schedule to those with access. Thanks for your patience.


  • The INRF will be closed this Saturday (08/13) in order for Facilities to perform maintenance on the compressors.
  • The DI water in the INRF is still down due to leaks within the facility. We are still working on getting these repaired.


  • No after-hours use is still in effect until after the 27th (Special permission will be granted if staff is on site)
  • The exhaust issue seems to be under control but stay vigilant and pay attention to the alarms in case the issue arises again. Facilities is still investigating the cause.


The issue has been resolved. Feel free to use the cleanroom.

All the benches in the BION are alarming. Facilities has been notified. Please do not use the benches until further notice.

Due to the chemical hazard in room 1461 the BION will only be available from 8am – 7:30pm Monday – Friday until the hazard can be removed. Tentative date of removal is the 23rd.

Dear Users,

You will notice caution tape has been put up near the BiON. This is due to a chemical hazard in room 1461 in which a peroxide crystal was formed. Currently it is contained in our flammable cabinet and access to the room is off limits. Due to the hazard, we are asking that users halt after hours and weekend use of the BiON cleanroom until 8/23/16, as this is when the hazard team will arrive to dispose of this material. We have requested an earlier expedited date, but as of now they will arrive on 8/23/16. We will keep users posted as we learn more.

Thank you for your cooperation!

The HF room in the BION will be closed today as we will be doing maintenance on the Dicing Saw.
