Subject: Problem RAITH SNF 2005-05-26 17:32:36: RAITH ALERT: Check your exposures for focus!!

Greetings Raith Users:
Last night on the Electrostatic Chuck and then again today on the Std. 
Sample Holder I observed much larger than normal offsets from true level 
during and after leveling routines.  These offsets are on the order of 
+- 300 um rather than the typical 12 - 28 um for the ESChuck and 28 - 55 
um for the Std. Sample Holder.
The result of my write last night was very large lines and not all areas 
cleared, indicating focus was not suitable during the write.  Users are 
encouraged to inspect and review their patterns carefully BEFORE pattern 
transfer.  I will look further into this issue in the morning. Has any 
one else observed this recently, please report to the list.  I request reports of good and bad 
exposures and the date and time you were on the system.
Thank you for your support!
