Ask the Staff Forum
Welcome to the "Ask the Staff" forum! Our goal with this forum is to increase the collaboration and communication among the Birck research community and the staff. This is a place to ask process questions, inquire about equipment, discuss safety issues and procedures, and bring up almost anything relative to working at the Birck Nanotechnology Center. We encourage you to use this new communication tool, and over time there should be many threads developing and evolving on a variety of topics. We would also encourage students and faculty to participate in the dialog in the forum, and add appropriate ideas and solutions as well. Your career account User Name and Password are required to log in.

Thank you for using this communication tool! Any comments and/or suggestions about this forum would be greatly appreciated.
