Good Morning Raith Community:


With so many Users now working on the RAITH 150 system it is with increasing importance that you be careful and conscientious with your CORAL reservations on the tool, in particular with respect to timely notice of cancellations.  In the last month there have been a number of cancellations with little or no notice in advance, a number of no shows that were not announced to coral, and other unfortunate incidents that resulted in a loss of opportunity to other users and idle time on the system.

Henceforth, Users must ensure that they are ready to write on the RAITH system if they make a reservation for the system. 
If you cancel your session with less that 24 hours of notice in a message to the email list, AND the system is not utilized by any other user for that entire reservation time block, resulting in a loss of opportunity to other users waiting for access to the system --  you will be charged for the entire session period.
On the second occurrence within a 90 day period, you will loose your access to the system for two weeks.
Third incident and you will be doing your ebeam lithography elsewhere.

We will try out this policy on an evaluation period for the remainder of the summer session.  In the fall during the late September Ebeam Town Hall Meeting we can parley and lobby for changes to this policy or to implement a better means to deal with users whom do not honor their reservations.
This is in response to a number of complaints and a cluster of cancellation incidents over the course of the last month.

Your comments and suggestions are invited.

Thank you for your support!

James Conway
