MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms manages a research facility for making and measuring things on length scales from atoms to buildings. Rather than requiring user fees, it is funded by CBA's research programs for use by participating researchers, with additional available time shared with collaborating programs. The tools are grouped by nano, micro, meso, and macro feature sizes, and instrumentation, biology, computation, and communication capabilities.

Access to use these facilities outside of CBA research is approved on a case-by-case basis, based on available capacity and program connections. Requests for periodic training should be sent to shop-admin@cba.mit.edu, and for prioritization these must come from research group heads. They should include the reason for the request, the institutional status of the person being trained, and what capabilities they want access to. Note that this training provides authorization to work independently; short-term or occasional use is handled by supervision by collaborating trained users.
