CNM Scheduled Maintenance Periods

2019 Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) maintenance periods

The CNM remains open to you during maintenance periods; however, certain capabilities may not be available and some utilities may not be operating at normal conditions. Please confirm with your CNM Scientific Contact whether your capability will be affected and plan your work visits accordingly.

2019 maintenance periods:

  • January 2-8, 2019
  • May 3-12, 2019
  • August 24 - September 3, 2019

NOTE: Electrical power for buildings 440 & 441 will be off Saturday, August 24, from 6:00 am until 6:00 pm for triennial preventive switchgear maintenance. These buildings will be closed to all scientific related work activity during this time. Emergency power will supply ventilation systems at a reduced capacity; there will be no electrical power, lighting will be minimal, and there will be no temperature control. Monday, August 26 is reserved to bring tools back on-line.

We schedule three maintenance periods each year, lasting about one week each, to perform preventive maintenance on scientific instruments, their support equipment and building infrastructure systems. This helps us avoid unplanned shutdowns so your experience at CNM is smooth and productive from start to finish.
