New Gowning Procedure Starting April 20, 2022

Effective Wednesday, April 20, NNF will be moving away from the gowning garment bags and back to gowns hanging on hangers only. Gowning bags will still be available if you are more comfortable keeping your gowning in a bag; please let the NNF staff. New suit components will once again be located in the cabinets in the gowning room.

Please note that gowning room reservations are still mandated for all users for every entry, and the NNF Wellness Form is required daily for all users and staff who enter the fab.

We will also still require that users put on shoe covers, gloves, and a facemask before entering the gowning room.

New Gowning Room Policy Starting March 21, 2022

Effective Monday, March 21, NNF users will be lifting the restriction that mandates one person at a time in NNF’s gowning room.

However, any users who prefer to use the gowning room alone can continue to do so.

  • The hallway monitor that shows the gowning room will remain in place, so staff/users can confirm whether or not someone is already in the space before entering.
  • If you plan on entering the gowning room when another staff/user is already there, please confirm with this staff/user that they are comfortable sharing the space with you before entering. 

In order for this policy change to remain intact, it is critical that all users respect the wishes of staff/users who prefer to use the gowning room alone. 

Please note that gowning room reservations are still mandated for all users for every entry, and the NNF Wellness Form is required daily for all users and staff who enter the fab.

We will also still require that users put on shoe covers, gloves, and a facemask before entering the gowning room.

NNF CoVid-19 Policy for External Users

• External NNF users are expected to follow the same code of conduct as NCSU students, faculty and staff. The University’s expectation is that on-campus visitors will avoid activities that have a high-risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2. https://www.ncsu.edu/coronavirus/faculty-staff/working-on-campus/

• External users must submit  proof of full Covid-19 vaccination to Dr. Phil Baretta (pbarlet@ncsu.edu)

• All users/staff are expected to act in the best interests of safety of the facility. Potential or suspected exposures must be derisked by self-quarantining and Covid-19 tests.

Welcome!

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.
