Lab Users,

This message is a copy of a notice that I sent out to the E-beam users
on Tuesday informing them of a tentative E-beam  shutdown for about 9
days starting on September 1.
We are still waiting for a reply from Hitachi before making a final
decision about this date.
The decision should be made by this Monday. If the September 1 start
date has to be delayed, the delay will be for at least 3 weeks.

    Thanks,  Jim McVittie

        Tentative Date for E-beam Shut Down

E-Beam Users:

Following up the discussion we had at the last user meeting, we have a
tentative date for the E-bean shut down. As you recall from my talk, to
make room for the new Raith e-beam system and the Hitachi 4160 SEM in
room L104, we need to shut down the Hitachi HL-700F E-beam system for
about 1 week. During this time the room would be rewired and the HL-700F

support electronics will be moved to a better position in the room.  It
looks like a good time for this shut down is between Saturday Sept. 1 to

Monday Sept. 10.   If this date will cause a major disruption to your
work, please let me know ASAP.  As for bringing the E-beam system back
up, we are planning to have a Hitachi’s E-beam support technician on
standby during the week of Sept. 10 to be able to come in and help us if

any problems develop.

 Thanks,  Jim McVittie
