External Users

External users are researchers who have no affiliation with Georgia Tech.  This includes researchers from institutions other than Georgia Tech, government labs, and industry.  If you are coming from an academic or government institution, you will pay the same rates as Georgia Tech users. 

Prospective external users will need to first contact Dr. Hang Chen (; 404-894-3360), who will walk you through the process of becoming one. 

New User Orientation

All prospective users of the IEN cleanrooms and labs are required to attend a new user orientation.  This training will cover policies and procedures, laboratory safety, and basic processing & fabrication development.  After attending an orientation and completing the prerequisite entrance tests, users will be granted access to the IEN facilities and resources.
