Training: Sputter coater training (online) - Harvard Training Portal
Trainer: Jules Gardener
This training is for the HAR-050 EMS dual head and HAR-053 EMS single head sputter coaters located in the CNS Imaging sample preparation room (LISE B15A). These tools are optimized for coating SEM samples with a thin conductive layer. The HAR-050 is equipped with Pt/Pd and Au targets, although Cr is available as an adhesion layer upon request. The HAR-053 is for Pt/Pd deposition only. We cannot accommodate other metal targets in this sputter coater, and this instrument is not suitable for depositing thick films.

Sputter coater training is available in an online format for these tools. You must pass this online training, and have completed the B15A room safety training (also available online), before access to the sputter coaters can be granted. Once you have completed these requirements, you will have access to both sputter coaters. There is no sign-up required for our online trainings and these can be taken by CNS users at any time.

Training: FIB Helios - Basics - LISE B15 F
Trainer: Stephan Kraemer
Users will be introduced to the basic handling of the instrument and its capabilities. A brief introduction into the underlying interaction of the ion beam with the material is given. At the end of the session users will be able to run a basic cross section analysis. Specific topics are: bringing sample to eucentric height, electron and ion beam alignment, deposition of protection layers, preparation and cleaning of cross sections, recording of high-resolution SEM images. These form the basis for more advanced tasks such as TEM sample preparation or serial section 3D analysis.

Training: SP-3 AJA sputtering system training for 3-gun system - In the cleanroom, next to the tool
Trainer: Christine Yi-Ju Wang
Prerequisite: "Introduction to Thin Film Growth and Processing"

The system has one RF source and two DC sources (DC power supply is switchable between the two sources). SP-3 can deposit many different materials including conductive metals and oxide and nitride materials (Al, Cu, Si3N4, SiO2, etc.). No ferromagnetics (including Ni, Fe, Co) are allowed in SP-3. CNS does not supply Au or Pt for use in SP-3. The system has process O2 flow, process N2 flow, substrate heating to 850C, and can facilitate co-sputtering with 1 RF and 1 DC gun. After an additional one-to-one training for target changes, the user can then change targets on their own to fit their own schedule. After 3 uses (with no problems) users are given 24/7 access.
