Help Wanted CNF Fellows
Cornell grad students are invited to apply for a part-time fellowship that would supplement their graduate research assistantship. The responsibilities of CNF Fellows are to provide information for current and future CNF users about new techniques, recipes, and procedures, and also current performance of tools such as etchers. They do this through the CNF user process wiki and data placed at the tools and on AFS. The time commitment is approximately 5 hours per week. We are looking for students who are proficient with some or all of the following tools (and others in the future): contact aligners; e-beam lithography systems; steppers; dry etchers; evaporators; oxide and nitride furnaces; SEMs.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please email a statement of your interest, a list of tools you are proficient with, and a resume (in any common file format) to Alan Bleier, bleier[at]

GCA AS200 Stepper *UP* Please READ
The GCA AS200 stepper is UP and available for use, HOWEVER the AWALIVE feature is not working; this means that the tool is only operating in 100mm wafer mode. RTS is working on the issue.

If you need to use the tool at a different size, let me know in advance.

Also, please note that the alignment microscope lamp must now be turned on using the white buttom on top of the operator console.

Electron Beam Lithography General Training
Every Tuesday from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm in 254 Duffield Hall there will be a general introduction to electron beam lithography, which covers both the JEOL 6300 and the JEOL 9500.

Before attending this training, please supply the information about your project which is requested under Equipment Training on the JEOL 6300 web page, .

This session covers tool specifications, radiation safety, pattern conversion software, and writing job files.

In addition to this introduction, you must complete a hands-on training session in the cleanroom on either the JEOL 6300 or the JEOL 9500 before you can use either of those tools. Sign up online using the Education and Training link on the CNF users web site.

CNF Short Course: Technology & Characterization at the Nanoscale (CNF TCN). This intensive 3.5 day short course offered by the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility, combines lectures and laboratory demonstrations designed to impart a broad understanding of the science and technology required to undertake research in nanoscience. TCN is an ideal way for faculty, graduate students, post docs and staff members to rapidly come up to speed in many of the technologies that users of the CNF need to employ. Members of the high tech business community will also find it an effective way to learn best practices for success in a nanofab environment. Attendance is open to the general scientific community, but class size is limited. REGISTER ONLINE BY MONDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2014!
