Greetings Raith Community:

Today is the Tenth Anniversary of 'First Light' on the Stanford Raith 
150 system.

In the course of the last ten years the Raith 150 tool and I have made 
significant contributions to basic research in Nano-Antennas, Photonic 
Crystals and Integrated Photonic Platforms, and more recently in 
Plasmonic devices in addition to all the normal device fabrications for 
MEMS, NEMS, and microelectronics.

To date over 350 Users have been trained with nearly 200 currently 
working on the tool.  More than 50 peer reviewed Journal articles in 
Photonics and Plasmonics have resulted from this effort and I have been 
credited with significant contributions in more than 35 PhD thesis and 
defenses in the last  five years.

In looking back at many successes here at Stanford, I believe my biggest 
contribution here at Stanford has been in the creation and support of a 
large community of researchers working in rabid collaboration on the 
RAITH 150 system.

I look forward to further engagement with lab members in the next decade 
of research here at Stanford and hope to add Ion Beam Lithography 
capability to the Ebeam Lab this decade.

Thank you for your support!
