On behalf of several lab members working in the Ebeam Lab we are seeking 
some SOI wafers to aid in their research here at SNF.

If you have quality SOI wafers, or slices, that you have archived and 
will no longer be needing please reply to this message.
Please let us know what Si thickness and BOX layer thickness(es) you may 
have on hand.

These users combined only need 2 - 6 wafers, and most are interested in 
working on 2 X 2 cm sq. pieces, but we are finding the minimum order 
from SOITec to be 10 - 12 for the wafer type they desire.  We are 
currently obtaining quotations for these wafers. Estimates for cost are 
$340 - 380.00 US.

Conversely if you are also seeking, or will be doing work on, SOI wafers 
in the near term future -- please reply to this message as well.
Please let us know the optimal Silicon and Buried Oxide Layer thickness 
you desire. 
If there is enough interest we might be able to combine our orders and 
obtain a supply sufficient for all of our needs through the end of the  

Q: Do you think SOI wafers of some nominal standard type should be 
stocked and inventoried in the SNF Lab Stockroom?

Thank you for the favor of your reply to: and
