All in-person trainings that CNS offers are listed in one of three categories. They are as follows:

Open Event: Any training with this designation is not charged and one does not require a CNS User Name and password in order to register. As a result, you can sign-up for any training with this designation even prior to completion of the CNS User enrollment process.

CNS Users Only: Trainings under this training designation do require an active CNS UN and PW. One must have completed the CNS User enrollment process and received the new user confirmation email in order to attend a training of this designation.

LISE Cleanroom Users Only: Trainings under this designation require, in addition to having a CNS UN and PW, that one be fully cleanroom qualified before one can sign-up. Information on how to become cleanroom qualified can be found in the User Info section of the website under the Nanofabrication Facility Use tab.

CNS does offer some trainings online through the Harvard University Training Portal. They will be listed below and do not require advance sign-up. Online trainings at the portal do require a Harvard Key. If you are a Non-Harvard User who does not have a HUID or HU Key, you will get one as part of the enrollment process.

The LISE CNS Safety Training, which is required as part of the enrollment process, is not listed as it is held at fixed times. Please see the Become a CNS User tab of the CNS web site for more info regarding that training.

Important information regarding training pre-requisite requirements and training pathways for specific instrumentation can be found in the User Info section of the CNS website under the tabs: Nanofabrication Facility Use and Imaging and Analysis Facility Use.

If you cannot find a training for something you are interested in receiving training on at CNS, please see the instrument sections of our website to find the technical staff member who manages it and contact them directly. If you cannot figure out who to contact regarding training, please contact us at info@cns.fas.harvard.edu

It is CNS policy that CNS Users only sign-up for trainings that they plan to attend. It is not permitted for a CNS User to sign-up for a groupmate or other party as a placeholder.

This metrology part-1 training event will focus on fundamental measurement tools for nanofabrication including, contact/stylus surface Profilometer (DekTak XT and 6m) (PL-5/8), single wavelength scanning Ellipsometer (Gaertner-LSE) (ES-2), scanning sheet resistance mapping (CDE-ResMap 4-Pt Probe system) (MET-2), and Semiconductor Parameter Analyzer w/ Signatone 4-Pt Probe Station (Agilent 4156C & Signatone 4pt Probe Station)(PB-1 & CE-1/2). Full independent access to these tools listed above can be achieved, however the amount of time spent on each tool will vary based on participants. We meet inside the Cleanroom gowning area or within the Metrology Bay inside the CNS cleanroom (G07).

Training: Metrology for Nanofabrication-Part 2 (Optical Profilometry and Veeco AFM) - LISE G07 Nanofabrication Cleanroom
Trainer: Jason Tresback
Please register and attend the Introduction to Metrology for Nanofabrication Lecture before attending Metrology for Nanofabrication part-1 or 2. Metrology for Nanofabrication part-1 is NOT required to attend part-2. This training event covers some advanced metrology techniques, such as the Optical Profiler (CCI HD) (PL-6) and the Atomic Force Microscope (Veeco NanoMan AFM) (SPM-5). Training on each tool may take up to 1 hour and after signing up for the training, users should also send an email to the CNS staff (jtresback@cns.fas.harvard.edu) to identify the tool they would like to learn and a brief description of the sample and measurement goal. Full independent access to the AFM (SPM-5) requires at least one individual user assisted session that serves as a qualification for independent use and scheduled on another day. AFM probes are provided for training; however users must supply their own probes during independent use. We meet inside the cleanroom gowning area or within the Metrology Bay inside the CNS cleanroom.

Training: Sharon EE-3 e-beam evaporator training - We meet in the cleanroom PVD bay (last bay inside of LISE G07)
Trainer: Ed Macomber
E-beam evaporation in EE-3 is covered; EE-3 can deposit 19 different materials (metals). All materials are user supplied for EE-3 (pellets and crucible liners). We will cover venting, loading the sample, pumping down (vacuum system) and the actual deposition. Plan on ~2 hr for this training. This is a manually operated deposition system and will likely take most users a few times using it to become comfortable with the machine. We meet in the cleanroom PVD bay (last bay inside LISE G07).
