STS is down for repair on some of the ceramics. (We are working with STS to get the parts ASAP)

Ebeam1 is down for maintenance to regen the cryo. Should be back up tomorrow.

Starting this Monday all equipment, except for Characterization and Spinners, will require that a reservation be made in advance. You will no longer be able to walk up and access the tool without a prior reservation. To access you will need to log into the Cleanlog and choose the Equipment Schedule tab, then select the equipment/time that is available. You may reserve the equipment up to 5 minutes prior to the equipment time slot.

If you plan to come in on Monday to use equipment, we suggest that you schedule this weekend. If you have any questions about equipment reservations, feel free to contact staff.

Thanks for your cooperation!

  • HF Bench has passed inspection and is now open
  • STS is down. Jake will look at it on Monday to determine the next step

The Filmetric/Nanospec is down. The power supply needs to be serviced. We expect it to be back online in approximately one week and we will post when its up.

In room 2320 the second bench from the door we had an acid spill in the storage area. The container was not in double containment, not properly labeled and the only identification marks were “XV2”. Using ph paper the acid level was 1 – 0. We believe the material was nano strip.

THE INRF IS NOT APPROVED FOR CORROSIVE ACID MATERIALS, ONLY SOLVENTS AND PHOTO RESIST 

Facilities is working on getting the ventilation issues worked out but we still have no time frame as to when this will be resolved.

The pump for the Trion needs to be sent out for maintenance. The Trion will be down until further notice.
