A warm welcome from the CGC Research Facilities. The CGC provides access to state-of-the-art research facilities worth over £30 million. These facilities are organised in multiple laboratories and cleanrooms (class 100 and 1000). Each laboratory and cleanroom has a lab leader and deputy leader who look after the equipment and operations. CGC also hosts two Royce Institute Laboratories, including e-Beam Lithography and High-Frequency Antennae Characterisation. 

Assessing risk in your experiments in our labs and cleanroom is an important step in making sure you work in a safe environment. All users need to make sure they cover their work in full with relevant Risk Assessments and COSHH. 

For your reference, a blank Risk Assessment can be downloaded here, and a COSHH form can be downloaded here. The University Risk Assessment Guide is essential if you have never done this before.

Any equipment will require booking before use, and the booking system can be found here.

If you are lost or simply not sure where to start, you are welcome to get in touch with the CGC Research Facilities Manager, Dr Yury Alaverdyan.
