Group 50
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 any paper to the 'Hands-On' sessions.
