Numbers of Annual Users

The UCSB Nanofabrication Facility has seen large user base growth extending from 1998 to the present. A decrease was seen from 2013-2015 which was primarily a result of reduced academic government funding stemming from sequestration. Since 2015, growth in both academic and industrial sectors has been observed with 2018 reaching the highest levels to date. The facility serves a broad range of disciplines with Optics, Electronics, Materials, MEMs, and Physics all being over 12% of use.
