Fill out the key request/safety tour request form. You will need to provide the name of an advisor or collaborator you will be working with in the lab.
Take an orientation tour of the lab. If you have preferred times for taking your tour, you should indicate that in the "Preferred Date & Time" line of the form above. The lab safety officer will contact you about a tour after receiving your application.
Complete the lab safety training course and test. You will need to score at least 70% on the exam to be certified.
Pick up your key. Keys are issued by Vince Needham, CW028/CW039. Your key will typically be ready on the next business day after you have satisfied all of the above safety training requirements.
Mechanical keys can be obtained for the JRML technical support areas, rooms CW004, CW006, CW007, and CW052. These are issued by the Kansas State University Key office. You must fill out a key request form in the Physics Department office and read the university's key policies.
Using Electronic Keys:
Access to the lab itself is controlled using electronic proximity tokens, which may be either cards or fobs. The antennas that read these tokens are mounted on the wall near the main entrance to the lab, and on the back door of the "penthouse" on the lab roof. Simply hold your token in close proximity to the antenna to open the door lock.
There are also keypads associated with these antennas. The passcode is only available on a need-to-know basis.
Lost or Stolen Keys:
Lost or stolen keys need to be reported to Vince Needham, CW028/CW039. The old key will be invalidated and a new key issued.
When you leave Kansas State University, or will no longer be working in the JRM Lab, your key card needs to be returned. It can be given to Vince Needham, Charles Fehrenbach, or your research advisor.
Mechanical keys need to be returned to the campus key office per university policy.
