FY18 Survey. Nick, our new director, is asking for YOUR feedback about SNF. Your valuable inputs will feed discussions about the future of fabrication technologies at Stanford. Participate in the survey and enter the daily drawing for Coupa gift cards!

FY18 Labmembers' Meeting. Our new SNF Faculty Director, Nick Melosh, presented his vision for the lab. Also presented are the FY18 plans (rates and new tools), new ExFab equipment, and the new/improved/ever-evolving Contamination program. Meeting slides available.

E241 Fall Fab Project Class is underway now. If you missed it, Jon Fan's project planning meeting slides are available here.

New Nanoscribe. The long wait is over: the Nanoscribe Photonic Professional GT system is now available in ExFab. Please contact Swaroop for training and info. Please stay tuned for new acquisitions expected this summer: the Asylum AFM with inert environment/thermal and electronic probing capability and the DISCO Backgrind system.

New Optomec. The Optomec Aerosol Jet 300 is capable of printing solutions with viscosities ranging from 1 to 1000 cp with resolution down to 10 microns onto 3D surfaces. This system was just commissioned. If you'd like to be among the first to put this system to the test, contact Swaroop.

Alveole PRIMO Demo . Thanks to Prof. Pruitt and Gaspard Pardon, we have the opportunity to host a demo of the Alveole PRIMO, which enables patterning of multiple proteins on glass slides. Due to popular demand, Alveole has kindly agreed to extend the demo period through December. For more information, see the flyer or contact Mary.

Winter Closure. The annual Winter Closure at Stanford will begin Monday, 12/25/17. The University reopens on Monday, 1/8/18. Accordingly, SNF will close for business at 7 am Thursday, 12/21/17 and reopen at 7 am on Tuesday, 1/9/18. Start those vacation plans!
