Short Courses (limited registration)
[registration for the User Meeting is required (either M-F or Th-F);
1/2-day sessions are repeated in the afternoon]

8:30 a.m.– 12:00 noon

Lunch: 12:00 – 1:00

1:00 – 4:30 p.m.

A. Electron-Beam Lithography for Beginning Users
For novice or potential users who have little or no hands-on experience, this course will concentrate on learning the Raith 150, 30 -kV electron lithography system. With an easy-to-follow Windows interface, this mid-sized tool can deliver 12-nm features. It also serves as our cleanroom scanning electron microscope.

B. Electron-Beam Lithography for Intermediate Users
For users with some hands-on experience, this course will concentrate on the advanced JEOL 9300 instrument. The JEOL9300FS 100-keV electron lithography system provides capability of reproducibly achieving feature sizes below 10 nm. This state-of-the-art tool has a 1-nm address grid over a complete 1-mm field size. Pattern placement errors are in the single-digit nanometers, and the system can handle samples from small pieces to 8-inch wafers.

C. Focused Ion Beams for Nanofabrication
Focused ion beam systems use a finely focused beam of gallium ions operated at low-beam currents for imaging and at high-beam currents for site-specific milling. Their versatility makes them popular for a wide variety of applications, including advanced circuit edititing and revealing below-the-surface defects in advanced materials and devices. This tool complements the two electron-beam tools.
