Holonyak Lab COVID restricted access
Holonyak Lab maintains its own separate access control system as required for a semiconductor facility. During continued COVID campus restrictions, this internally managed system will restrict all building access to researchers with laboratories and offices within the building, as well as a restricted group of students for the ECE 444 laboratory which resides within Holonyak Laboratory. University protocols require twice weekly COVID testing for all faculty, staff, and students who access the university for any length of time for any reason.
Toxic Gas Analyzer Upgrade
Holonyak Lab received a shipment of upgraded CL-96 tape-based toxic gas analyzer systems on August 11th. Commissioning will occur in August and there will be improved sensing response as well as communications with the university public safety, facilities, and engineering staff.
