Raith Users:

A 30 keV EHT Trip event on the system last night resulted in damage to 
the Electron Optics board on the LEO SEM package. Specifically the 
Magnification Amplifier for Magnification Range Three was blown on 
Electron Optics board and we cannot perform imaging above 13,250 X 

This will make SEM column alignment and stigmation adjustments difficult 
in not impossible for most users.

LEO & Raith was updated on this at 7 AM 8-04-04. I followed up with them 
escalating to 'system down' in need of immediate response at 1315 hours 
080404 through both LEO and Raith Service desk.

We will update to this list tomorrow afternoon if more information 
presents itself.  Currently the system is in YELLOW MODE and still 
available to users wishing to attempt exposures on the system.

Thank you for your support!
