We will start with a lecture to cover the basic materials, Tuesday Oct. 16th at 10:00 AM in ALLEN 101.  We will resume after lunch at 2:00 PM with a review of scanning electron microscope operations on the RAITH tool including the Demo Layer One demonstration in the SNF Ebeam Lab. Wednesday to Friday 10 - 6 PM, and if needed additional session(s) the following week will be entirely hands-on for attendees.

Any RAITH User wishing to attend are also welcomed. If you desire a review of operations on the RAITH 150 system, please join us during any part of this class.

Please review the RAITH Training PowerPoint slides that I have provided to you.  They are also on the desktop of the RAITH off-line computer in the center of the Ebeam Lab. The folder is called RAITH TRAINING V6.

Users are also encouraged to attend the "Take a Spin with Me" class covering Ebeam Resist handling procedures.

Please see me during my office hours if you have questions (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday 9 - 10 AM at ALLEN 31)

Group 53
RAITH Basic Users Class Schedule:

The Plan:
We will start out with a lecture on Tuesday morning followed by a quick review of SEM operations in the afternoon and a demonstration of a complete unaligned exposure.
We then quickly move into entirely 'hands on' operations training sessions through the remainder of the week.

We will break for lunch at various times, normally while the system is writing, so plan to be flexible with your other outside commitments.  
You should start working on your GDS II patterns and preparing PMMA on your substrates if you wish to write on your material during this class.
Please bring your GDSII patterns, or simply your designs in your head or on paper to the 'Hands-On' sessions.
