Integrated Nanosystems Research Facility

INRF & BiON Users,

Due to a potential increase chance of risk to campus personnel, for the time being please do not leave wet chemical processes unattended on the lab benches after-hours.
This includes but is not limited to HF processes, piranha etch solutions and RCA cleans solutions.
Repeat: No wet chemical processes are to be left unattended after-hours.
Please be sure to plan appropriately and complete your work including finishing cleaning up by end of business day each day.
Thank You,
INRF Staff

INRF and BiON Users,

The Forged system has just been updated and in the update the equipment authorizations have now been enabled and made live.  All of the info should be accurate but it is highly suggested to verify this ahead of time so as to ensure you can access the equipment when the time comes that you will need it.

To verify this, please click “My Authorizations” under the Dashboard Navigation Panel  (  https://inrf.forged.systems/dashboard/home/authorizations/ ) to see which tools you are currently authorized to use as well as whether or not you are authorized for after-hours use on that tool.

If you find that your authorizations are inaccurate, please contact staff to help correct.  It is suggested to contact the supervisor of the tool (listed on the equipment status page).

Thank You,

INRF Staff

INRF Users,
Today there was a blown cylinder head on one of the compressors for the lab compressed air.  As a result the lab compressed air is down and OFFLINE.  It looks like this will be the case at least until Monday 7/17/17 but it could be offline for another week or more.  We can update again as soon as we know more.
