Welcome to SNF!

The Stanford Nanofabrication Facility serves academic, industrial, and governmental researchers across the U.S. and around the globe. More than a lab, it's a vibrant research community. We are one of the four labs that are part of nano@stanford, under the NSF National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure program.

SNF includes a 10,000 sq ft cleanroom housing tools for device fabrication, satellite labs supporting Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD), new Experimental Fabrication methods (ExFab) and the new electronics shop for Systems Prototyping (SPF). SNF supports researchers in applications ranging from medicine and biology to fundamental physics and astronomy. We welcome researchers from all disciplines wishing to explore uses of micro- and nano- fabrication.

New Art Installations!

We'd like to call your attention to to some new, "temporary art installations" in and around the Allen and Annex buildings.  Thanks to the generosity of SoE, we are the proud recipients of three new furnace banks!  These are being temporarily stored around the building while we await permits and construction.  Any questions or concerns, please contact Carsen, the lead curator for this art project.
