For reasons undetermined, and this could just be for a short time, we
were able to get the E/O board to function nearly normally this morning.
RAITH Group X are in the process of writing their test patterns and will
act as a system check for functionality.
The column conditions have improved as well and imaging, shooting
contamination dots, stigmation and focusing are better than the last two
days. ALL Users are restricted from placing any holder apparatus,
tapes, and carbon dots into the system. If you are not willing to mount
your samples onto the Clips of the Standard sample holders do not access
the system this weekend.
WARNING: Blanker leakage was observed with the LEO Blanker -- so be sure
to move off your sample before switching to TV mode or starting your
unload procedure. No problems with the Raith Blanker section.
I have placed the system back into Yellow Mode so you can enable the
system and report to coral any problems you encounter. All Users are
expected to report their results to this list. Anyone with questions
call me on the cell phone anytime this weekend.
UPDATE: A new E/O board has been shipped from Germany and will be
installed Monday or Tuesday after it arrives here in CA. Raith is also
likely to come in next week to support and facilitate a return to normal
order on the system.
Please write as much as you can and collect data for me until the time
we take the system down for repairs and maintenance. This means that
reservations for Monday afternoon, Tuesday and Wednesday DAYS may not be
available for system access.
Thank you for your support!
