Dicing Saw Down for Upgrade July 8-17
CNF has purchased a new Disco DAD3240 Dicing Saw and will be replacing the old KS7100 saw from July 8th through July 17th. During this time of transition, there will be no dicing capabilities at CNF. We will do our best to make the transition as quick and easy as possible. When the exchange is complete, users can schedule training to become qualified on the new saw. Please see Sam Wright to make arrangements.

New CNF Fellow Needed!
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. 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 to Alan Bleier, bleier[at]cnf.cornell.edu

JEOL 6300 is available - stuck wafer cassette has been extracted
A wafer cassette was stuck between the stage and the autoloader on the JEOL 6300. A user did not capture one end of the spring on the 4 inch wafer cassette and it hung up on the way from the stage to the loader. The system is now available after JEOL got the cassette out.

Please make sure you capture both ends of the spring when using the wafer cassettes. This could have caused a lot of expensive damage if the spring had been oriented differently.

Zeiss Supra stage doesn't go to correct position for loading and unloading
If this happens during the day, please call or page the staff, do not just send an email or enter a problem in coral. The tool managers are listed on the tool information sheet mounted on the side of the tool.

If it happens at night or on the weekend, try pressing CHNGE and No a couple times, that may fix it. The stage should go to (X,Y,Z,T,R) = (55.706, 8.110, 21.917, 0.0, 337.7) for loading and unloading. Use the Stage tab in the SEM Controls window to see the current stage position. A service request has been filed with Zeiss to come and do a real fix.

Ultra SEM is up; Please delete unneeded reservations
The problem with the touch alarm has been resolved and the Ultra is available.


Since the Ultra is getting fully booked due to the Supra problems, it would be helpful if users who determine they do not need their reservation take the time to remove it so others can get on the tool.
