SNF Industrial Lab Members:

The National Science Foundation has asked us two questions about 
companies that are using our facility that are difficult for us to know, 
but likely very easy for you to determine.  This information will be 
only used by NSF and will not be published or discussed outside of the 
National Science Foundation.  It should only take a minute or two to 

First, they have asked us to identify companies that were founded based 
on technology developed primarily at SNF or at one of the other NNIN 
laboratories.  This will primarily be companies formed by a faculty 
member or a graduate student based on University research, that have 
spun off from such research activity, or by companies that have licensed 
such technology.

Second, they have asked us to identify companies that conduct the great 
majority of their fabrication R&D effort at SNF or at one of the other 
NNIN laboratories.

If you believe that your company falls into either category, would you 
kindly send me a quick email message that includes your company name, 
the approximate year that your company was founded, and the category to 
which your company belongs.

Thanks for your consideration.


Note: the other institutions that are members of the NNIN include 
Arizona State University, Cornell University, Georgia Tech, Harvard, 
Howard University, Penn State, UCSB, University of Colorado, University 
of Michigan, University of Minnesota, UT Austin, University of 
Washington, and Washington University  of St. Louis.
