Stanford Nano Shared Facilities (SNSF)
The Stanford Nano Shared Facilities (SNSF) is a group of service centers (Nanofabrication, Electron & Ion Microscopy, X-ray & Surface Analysis and Soft & Hybrid Materials) that includes the Stanford Nanocharacterization Laboratory, the Nanopatterning Lab, the Ginzton Microfab, and the Soft and Hybrid Materials Facility. SNSF’s purpose is to provide shared scientific instrumentation, laboratory facilities, and expert staff support to enable multidisciplinary research and educate tomorrow's scientists and engineers.
Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF)
The SNF Facility includes a 10,000 sq ft cleanroom equipped with a full suite of tools supporting device fabrication and two satellite labs supporting Metallo Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) and new experimental fabrication methods (ExFab). Although conceived as an electronics-based research facility, SNF now supports researchers in applications ranging from medicine and biology to fundamental physics and astronomy.
