Abstract Scope The Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies and Nuclear Science User Facilities are programs focused on external visitors and utilize the unique capabilities present at Sandia National Laboratories’ Ion Beam Lab. Although Sandia and these programs never closed during the COVID pandemic, the resulting restrictions on travel and safety protocols had drastic impact on the operation of these user facilities. Realizing all situations have silver linings, our clever team utilized the pandemic period for instrument development, data analysis, and paper writing, which is not typically possible with regular user visits. In addition, this period resulted in the introduction and refinement of telecommuting experiments and virtual install that are expected in some form to remain post-pandemic. The ability to adapt and learn which is ingrained in multifaceted user facilities was paramount for the success we experienced during this challenging time. SNL is managed and operated by NTESS under DOE NNSA contract DE-NA0003525.
