CNF Policies and Procedures are detailed in the Lab Manual.

  • COVID-19 Lab Reactivation Policies
    During the reactivation phases of the CNF, special policies and procedures are in place. Users are expected to be familiar with these policies prior to re-admittance to the lab.

Each tool in the CNF has its own set of policies and procedures. Please see the individual tool webpages, the tool Equipment Information Sheets (on the tool webpages and posted at the tools), additional signage posted at the tool, and the tool manual at the tool. Direct questions to the tool manager.

    In limited circumstances, researchers can engage the CNF in fabrication conducted by CNF staff members with only the off-site involvement of the researcher.
  • Fellows Policy
    Policy and expectations for CNF Fellows.
