After Hour Access

The facility is staffed from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Mo-Fr. During this time, all users can access the facility and all processes are available. If a user wants to process outside of staffed hours (max. 8 pm), the following criteria must be followed:

  • User asks the HNF office for permission for after-hours access
  • You have to sign the permission as soon as possible.
  • If no signed permission is on hand for the current day until 4 pm the clean room is closed at 4:30 pm.
  • Access will be granted if:

    • You have the approval for the shutdown procedure of the cleanroom
    • You have user status on the piece of equipment
    • You are a regular user of the facility (at least once every two months on the piece of equipment they want access to)
    • The person who trained you on the piece of equipment signs the “after-hours access” form. For this to occur, the user must show that they are a mature user of that instrument.
    • A buddy is present (buddy system, see 5.6). Another approved cleanroom user is accompanying you all the time

In general:

  • The working time regulations of Forschungszentrum Jülich have to be observed
  • All wet benches are closed except the “Litho bank”. Equipment is closed that use hazardous gas supply
