CNF Staff Conducted Remote Process Work:
The CNF is primarily a hands-on facility, offering researchers access and training to use a comprehensive tool set with the support of an experienced technical staff. In limited circumstances, researchers can also engage the CNF in remote projects; that is, fabrication conducted by CNF staff members with only the off-site involvement of the researcher. Remote projects are performed as a service, and only in cases where; 1) the work needed is sufficiently limited that travel to Ithaca unwarranted, 2) appropriate tool resources are available, and 3) staff availability will allow completion in a timely manner. Remote projects comprise activities in which the CNF staff perform only a small number of routine and well characterized process steps that can be completed within a limited amount of staff time. CNF staff will not engage in remote projects that involve project design, significant process characterization, or require research decisions or judgments. All remote work is performed on a best effort basis and CNF does not guarantee success of the work product. The CNF User Program Managers can advise interested parties on the possibilities, constraints, and costs of such remote work. In the event that CNF cannot accept a request for remote work, researchers may wish to consider other options, including hiring a private contractor as discussed below.
Other Remote Options:
CNF now stocks a few commonly-requested thin films which may be ordered in limited quantities for quick turn-around. For details visit http://www.cnf.cornell.edu/cnf_wafer_express.html .
The CNF also supports the activities of several independent fabrication consultants, who will accept contract work with interested parties. Although not formally affiliated with the CNF, these contractors are trained CNF users, offering expertise in a variety of fabrication technologies and providing their own liability insurance. The CNF will advertise fabrication opportunities, however the prospective employers must negotiate the terms of service directly with the applicants.
The CNF will neither mediate these discussions nor endorse the capabilities of individual consultants. Thoughtful deliberation is recommended to all parties.
All remote work is guided by the provisions of the CNF User Program, and as with all other CNF projects, requires a proposal form (statement of work), a properly signed New User application, and proof of liability insurance appropriate to the activity.
