Paper Abstract

The label "nanotechnology" covers a host of research applications, some of which require vastly more costly infrastructure than others. Basic engineering issues, research themes, and design choices determine the budget of the nanotech facility. When designing a nano lab, the users and the architect face a number of decisions about the performance of the space and the costs associated with achieving the performance criteria. These choices and recommendations are outlined in this paper.
