Greetings all:

Labmembers, PI's and research advisors are invited to an SNF Community 
meeting in which plans for new equipment acquisitions will be 
discussed.  This meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 2, from 10 
am- noon in the CISX Auditorium.

As you may have heard, as part of the NNIN, SNF has received some 
funding to support new tools.  Our proposal requested funding for tools 
on the SNF Faculty/Industrial AdCom wishlist. The tools that were funded 
are:  ALD, Ebeam evaporator, sputter deposition, and PECVD.  Over the 
past several months, a small group of SNF staff and labmembers have been 
meeting to explore the commercially available equipment options and 
solicit ideas from research groups.  At this meeting, the New Equipment 
Group will present a summary of options, the trade-offs, and 
advantages/disadvantages of different approaches for each tool.  Your 
participation and input are appreciated in helping to shape the final 
decisions.  We ask interested research groups to make sure you are 
represented.  Presentation slides will be posted on the wiki before the 
meeting and linked from the SNF home page.  The agenda is as follows:

10-10:30 - ALD (J Provine)
10:30-11- Ebeam evaporator (Ed Myers)
11-11:30 - Sputter system (Ed Myers)
11:30-12 - PECVD (Jim McVittie)

Feedback and discussion outside this meeting is also encouraged.  Please 
feel free to contact any of us.

The New Equipment Group (Tom O'Sullivan, J Provine, Ed Myers, Jim 
McVittie, John Shott, Mary Tang)
