Hi all --

We've been pretty careful about making sure people don't spin coat 
nanoparticles in the lab, with the exception of polystyrene spheres at 
the headway2 (because PS spheres can be removed easily using acetone or 
other solvents.)

I am not sure, but suspect that this stuff is basically nanoparticles of 
BN suspended in some sort of binder and adhesive.  It's non-conductive, 
so less of a concern than nanogold or carbon nanotubes getting spun up 
in the lab.  But they could be hard to get rid of if someone is pretty 
sloppy.  Just a thought.  As Mahnaz has often said, we should consider 
having a station set aside just for this kind of processing.

The other thing I think is interesting is that this stuff is basically 
cool grease, and is rated for vacuum systems and relatively high 
temperatures.  If this goes on smoothly, this could be a better way to 
bond wafers together for sts etching.  What do you think?  I'm thinking 
that, as Mahnaz says, we could use a manual spin coater for applications 
like this....
