General Lab Information

Policy as of March 23, 2020

On Monday, March 23, 2020, Brookhaven Lab limited on-site activities to only core, critical functions to reduce the number of people on site. The Lab is expected to operate in this mode until April 14, 2020, making further adjustments based on the evolving conditions.

At this time, the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) and Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) have suspended operation of their on-site user programs, with the exception of support for some remote structural biology research at NSLS-II. In addition, the CFN Computational Cluster remains in operation and available to remote users.

Even now, support for Brookhaven’s facility users continues as it did before. CFN and NSLS-II staff members have deployed to full-time telework assignments and remain dedicated to supporting users remotely. We are committed to advancing the science supported by our user facilities, and users are encouraged to continue working with us on their research projects.

We are confident that, by working together, we will continue to make exciting science advances even while dispersed and working remotely. As always, we are happy to answer any questions. Best wishes as you continue with your own plans, and we will look forward to seeing you all soon.

For questions, please reach out to the NSLS-II ( or CFN ( user offices.
