Nano Fabrication Center

The University of Arizona MicroNano Fabrication Center mission is to enable rapid advancements in research and innovation at the micro and nano scale by providing access to infrastructure and expertise. The NFC is an open, user friendly facility that serves academic, government and private researchers.

The MNFC welcomes anyone who would like to use the facility or learn more about what can be accomplished in the cleanroom.

CLEANROOM OPERATIONS DURING COVID-19

As a result of the need to create separation during the University Closure and the COVID-19 epidemic, the following procedural changes for cleanroom use are effective immediately:

1.  Non-affiliated groups and group members shall not occupy the gowning room at the same time

2.  Non-affiliated groups and group members shall not occupy the same processing bay at the same time.

3.  Non-affiliated groups and group members shall not occupy the same chase area at the same time.

4.  All surfaces touched by or in proximity to a user (especially door handles and key pads) shall be sprayed and wiped down using the provided peroxide spray bottle immediately after entering and prior to leaving the area.

 

Equipment scheduling and training requests are handled through iLab:
