Get Started

Becoming a New Lab User

To start, contact a staff member to make certain that your project can be done at Nanotech West.

Find information on how to get set up as a new active lab user at Nanotech West. This page has information on required lab training for both internal and external (non-OSU) users.

Special Cases

Recent Ohio State users of Nanotech West who have graduated and now wish to become external users do not have to repeat safety training – they simply have to file new user and project forms.

Contact Paul Steffen if you believe that you have some unusual situation.

Remote Service Projects

In some cases, we perform selected remote service projects. In this type of use, Nanotech West staff performs the actual work, most often with the extensive help of our Engineering Student Interns. Projects for remote service work are selected on a case-by-case basis.
