Tips for New Users

The QDNL’s primary mission is to support Princeton researchers who have demanding nanofabrication process requirements. The QDNL is not a training lab. Inexperienced users will be directed to use the engineering cleanroom. Users from industry and other universities are welcome to use the facility during normal working hours (Monday-Friday, 9 am to 5 pm). The QDNL charges a daily access fee and per hour equipment usage fees.

Before lab access is given, potential QDNL users must complete Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) Lab Safety Training.  After EH&S training is complete, sign up for the next available “chemical hoods/safety/spinners” training class.  Sign up for training on individual tools as needed.
