The University Microfabrication Laboratory Network is an informal
focal point for discussion on topics of mutual interest to
research and teaching microfabrication facilities.
Labnetwork Mailing List
This mailing list is intended to for those engaged in the management
or operation of university microfabrication facilities.
- Info on the list (subscribing, etc.) can be found at
the labnetwork list info page.
- An archive of
posts 2007 to present. Previous posts can be searched using Google and work best if "labnetwork" and "site:www-mtl.mit.edu" are included in the search string.
- An older archive of
previous mail messages, mid 1995 to early 2004.

Academic Microfabrication Facilities serve as a unique national resource by
advancing the state of the art in a range of competitive
microfabrication technologies. We intend to
organize the academic microfabrication communities -- both facilities and
users -- to leverage our complementary capabilities to promote and expand our
role in advanced technology education and pre-competitive research. This
organization will, for example:
Provide a forum to exchange expertise and technical knowledge on
facilities management, coordinate infrastructure investments to maximize
efficiency, and distribute general
operational information on a day-to-day basis.
Articulate the instrumental role of academic microelectronics
research to our industry and society at large, by assuming a proactive
explain our perspective.
Prepare and coordinate responses to new pre-competitive
opportunities to identify the shared interests and commonalities of our
Create new opportunities to fulfill our educational mission.
Be a continuing organization that identifies and addresses the primary
issues of the day, formulates straw man positions, and recognizes that
these primary issues change with time.
