Hello labmembers --

As many of you may have heard, Gladys Sarmiento (otherwise known as the
Diffusion Queen) has reinjured her wrist, requiring extensive surgery to

Until her return, please contact the following SNF staff members for
issues you would normally bring to Gladys:

- LPCVD (including poly, nitride, LTO):  Maurice Stevens (maurice at snf)
- Oxidation furnaces:  Nancy Latta (latta at snf)
- wbmetal, wbnitride:  Uli Thumser (uli at snf)
- wbdiff, wbnonmetal, wbsilicide:  Henry Phan (hphan at snf)
- Special projects/other issues:  Mary Tang (mtang at snf) and Mahnaz
Mansourpour (mahnaz at snf)

The process staff has Gladys' calendar, so if you have previously
scheduled training time or project time with her, you should still be
covered unless otherwise notified.  (Many thanks to Nancy, Maurice,
Henry, and Mahnaz for stepping in to fulfill Gladys' obligations, in
addition to their own.)

It is uncertain how long she will be out.   We all hope for her quick
recovery.  If you would like to join us in wishing her well, please take
a moment to sign the card which is posted outside the gowning room door.
