Additional NNF Operating Hours Sat 1/27

Update 1/21/18 7:30am

NNF will be OPEN this upcoming Saturday (January 27), from 9am to 5pm, to help PIs and students get caught up on any work they have missed this past week.

This day will be considered a normal NNF working day, and NNF staff will be onsite. Therefore, standard weekend rules (pre-approval, buddy system, no acids or hazardous gasses) will NOT be in effect. Just an additional day to get whatever you need done in the facility.

As a courtesy, please email Phil Barletta,, if you plan to use the facility, so the staff can plan accordingly.

Continue to watch for updates here and by email alerts.


The NCSU Nanofabrication Facility provides users with a broad range of nanofabrication capabilities to support a diverse set of projects.

The facility houses virtually all standard thin film processing tools. The facility serves as a melting pot for a community of top-notch researchers from academia, government labs and industry representing a variety of disciplines.

The vast majority of users prefer to come on-site for hands-on access to the facility. Users with well-defined projects can also have their work performed by our experienced staff.
