Greeting Ebeam and RAITH Users:

SNF staff members have been working hard to get further resources and 
equipment targeted for the Ebeam Lab. This is to enhance and improve our 
equipment and processing capabilities assisting you in your research 
here at SNF. It is imperative that all Ebeam Users submit an annual 
project report.  I am requesting you personally to get this task 
completed by October 1, 2004.  Last year we did not get any reports from 
the Ebeam Lab users community.  Our existence and future NNIN funding 
streams depend on you reporting your results in the annual SNF report. 
This is also a requirement that you agreed to when you joined SNF as a 
lab member.

Thank you for your support!

Greetings labmembers!

It's that time of the year again, when we ask (beg, plead, browbeat) you 
for annual reports...  Your reports are very important to us:  they help 
us to show NSF the kinds of activities that our tax dollars are 
supporting.  And perhaps even more importantly, they provide a really 
nice snapshot of what you and your fellow SNF labmates are up to...

As for the reports:

1. Reports are due October 1, 2004.  Email them as attachments to 
access at

2. Format is a single powerpoint slide, with a few bullets describing 
your work in general terms, and a graphic or two.  The graphic may be an 
SEM, a photo, or even just a conceptual sketch.  More than one slide may 
be used, if desired.  If there are any publications resulting from your 
work, please reference them.

3. Unless you wish to do so yourself, we will reformat your material to 
fit a standard layout.  If you would like the template, let us know and 
we'll send it to you.  And let us know if you wish to see how the slide 
looks before it is shown to NSF.

4. No proprietary or unreleased information should be included in this 
slide.  Please note that the slide will be presented to our NSF 
governing committees, and may be used (with permission) in promotional 
materials for SNF, including possible posting on our website.  If you 
wish the information to be embargoed (i.e., info is about to be 
published or presented at a conference), please let us know when it may 
be released.

5. This report is required from all labmembers active in the lab over 
the past academic year.  Two or more people on the same project can 
submit a single report.  Labmembers who have joined in the last three 
months are not required to submit a report, although are absolutely 
welcome to do so.

6. If you have material (meeting abstracts, publications, websites) 
which describe your work and are willing to allow us to interpret and 
extract the pertinent information, you can provide this material in 
electronic format instead of a slide.  Please indicate which aspects of 
your work required the use of SNF or Nanocharacterization Lab resources.

7. We have fifty nifty gifts awaiting the first 10 labmembers to submit 
reports and drawing winners for later entries.

Thanks for your attention and we look forward to your contributions 
(really and truly, we do  -- despite the administrative overhead, this 
is something we staff members do enjoy doing - it's really gratifying to 
see the breadth, quality, and sheer ingenuity of the work that is done 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact
