I was worried, after spending days/weeks dealing with resist
problems, and running resist
etch tests, that now my resist wouldn't work again. I object to
randomly changing machine
parameters without any testing what-so-ever. When I asked process and
how this would affect resist etching no one knew. We etched our
wafers early this morning
for 4 hours and the resist held up. Lucky for us.
I do not know what affect this will have on the Molecular Biology
however. These wafers were difficult to etch to begin with.
