Fabrication Services by NanoFab Staff

Perform fabrication services via NanoFab staff, instead of your staff/employees entering our lab.

Important Info on Fabrication Services

  • Rates are listed here. We bill for both "equipment use" plus "dedicated staff support" time per hour.
  • You will work directly with Demis or his staff to schedule the work, if the project is accepted.
  • Any project must first be accepted by our Project Scientists.
  • We have limited staff and are not a foundry, and we will only accept jobs that we are capable of performing with success.
  • There is no guarantee of research results or success in fabrication. We may also be able to suggest other ways to get your devices made in our lab if Staff use is not appropriate for your project.
  • You are billed as if your own employee were using the lab regardless of results. We can provide only a rough estimate of time and cost.
  • You will be billed for the Actual time and materials required during the job, regardless of project outcome. We send out bills monthly, with payment expected as Net30; Credit card payments are accepted.
  • Publications Policy - fabrication executed by NanoFab Staff is typically significant "intellectual contribution". Acknowledgement of NanoFab use is required at minimum.

Request Remote Fabrication Services

Submitting jobs for "remote" fabrication services requires the following steps:

1.   Contact us (email us) to determine project feasibility or ask questions.

2.   Nanofab Staff acceptance of project.

Paperwork for Fabrication Services

"Attachment A" for Service Agreement - Lists all UCSB facilities covered by this agreement.

  • If you are a UCSB Group, we don't need the service agreement. from you, only the Project Info & Description Form (above).
  • If you are a group from another UC, we don't need the Service Agreement, instead we need a different form: The Inter-Campus MOU (here is Attachment A).
