Integrated Nanosystems Research Facility

 

All INRF and BiON Users,

Reminder: Both INRF and BiON lab entrances are now done through the Forged System via Chrome

All equipment in both the INRF and BiON are also now operated through the Forged System via Chrome.

*There should be no more instances of the past Legacy System in operation, either for tools or for Lab Log in.

Please do NOT start playing around with netbooks or computers looking for the Legacy System or changing computer settings.

Please do NOT access the Latch System.

Please do NOT modify hardware (cables, latch boxes, etc).

Please only use the Chrome browser and the Forged website on lab computers and netbooks.

Everything is now universally done through the Forged System via Chrome.

If you have an issue with Forged system operation, please first check that your User Profile is fully complete, updated, and accurate. Then once that is verified contact staff for assistance vs. trying to change things yourself.

While we’re on the topic of Forged: Occasionally there may be rare internet disconnects (none have been reported today), and may find a computer with the internet disconnected logo shown below.

If you find that this is the case, please Right Click on the wireless and “Disconnect”. After waiting a few seconds, you can Right Click again and “Connect”.

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!

Today the contractors will continue painting the front office area so the office will be closed. There will be no front office staff on site. The INRF/BION cleanrooms will remain open and lab staff will be available at their usual times.

Due to the flood in the front office the contractors will be dry-walling and painting all day today.

The E-Beam 1 is now back up. The Trion and Mark 50 are still down.
