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.

Training: XeF2-1 - Xactix e2 XeF2 Etch System - LISE G07 CNS Cleanroom
Trainer: Ling Xie
XeF2 etch is mainly for isotopically etching silicon. It is widely used for releasing MEMS structures, such as switches, cantilevers, bridges, mirrors, membranes, channels, and thermal isolation cavities. Its merits include highly selective etch, no stiction problems as existed with wet etch, and long under cuts. XeF2 also etches Ge, Mo and SiGe and transitional metals W, Ti, Ta, TiN and TaN under certain conditions such as high temperatures, but wont etch Al, Ni, Cr, Pt, Ga, MgO, ZnO, AlN, GaAs, resist, and PDMS.

The Xactix e2TM System installed in CNS Cleanroom is manufactured by SPTS, an Orbotech Company, its main features include:
Table Top System
PC based control software manages recipes, logs data and manages multiple users with password protection
Open load system to handle multiple types of substrates (wafers, chips, dicing frames, packages) without special handling substrates
Expansion chamber-based design for precise, repeatable pulse pressures, and ease of mixing XeF2 with other gasses.
Transparent process chamber lid and shower head over full wafer allows visual inspection of the entire wafer.

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).

Training: SP-3 AJA 3-gun sputtering system training - CNS cleanroom (G-07) Dry Bay
Trainer: Mughees Khan
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 schedule. After 3 uses (with no problems) users are given 24/7 access.

Training: ALD-3 PdR ALD System Training - PVD Bay (last bay in cleanroom); small red and white instrument on far wall.
Trainer: Philippe de Rouffignac
This training provides users the protocols needed to operate the ALD-3 benchtop thermal ALD system. This system is primarily used for depositing Al2O3, SiO2 and Pt thin films on 4" substrates or 3D objects up to 8mm in height. The tool is capable of 40C deposition of Al2O3 and down to 100C for SiO2 and 125C for Pt. Both the SiO2 and Pt processes utilize ozone as the counter reactant. Proper use of the ozone generator is also included in the training.
