[Fwd: Spin-on transparent conductive layer]

Hi all --

Here's a request from Scott Andrews, who was a former student here so is 
familiar with the concerns.

I think I have some reservations.  We've not allowed conductive and 
semiconducting nanoparticles solutions at headway2 because the spray off 
the wafer edges will dry and the particulates will float around.  These 
could create problems if the contaminated other people's wafers.  We do 
allow latex nanoparticle in solution at headway2 because these are 
soluble in acetone and removed in sulfuric clean.  This stuff contains 
silver so it's rather like the conducting nanoparticle problem.  
However, unlike CNT's and many other nanoparticles, the standard cleans 
will remove possible contaminants.

I'm inclined to OK this, provided Scott is fully aware of the concerns 
and makes sure to cleanup and take appropriate precautions  (he has been 
a conscientious labmember).  Does anyone have other concerns?  I also 
think James should be made aware of this, since headway2 is his 
station.  What do you think?

Hi Mary,

We would like to use ClearOhm at the headway and hot plates.  Attached  
are the process notes and MSDS.  Has anything similar already been  
approved my the specmat committee?  I can prep the whole package for  
approval, but I seem to remember when I was at Stanford that these had  
been tried at SNF.  Please let me know if I need to go through the  
committee or if you expect any particular concerns.
