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: RIE 11 Plasma-Therm Versaline Diamond Etcher - CNS Cleanroom, Wet Process Bay
Trainer: Ling Xie
It is required to take the "Introduction to Dry Etching" before this training.

RIE 11 is used for diamond etch only!

The Versaline RIE is an Inductive Coupled Plasma Etching System with a maximum ICP source power of 1,200W and a maximum substrate bias power of 600W. The system is configured to handle 4 wafers and equipped with mechanical clamping and backside helium heat-conducting features. Its substrate temperature can be controlled from 10C to180C. In addition, temperatures of three other components inside the chamber can also be controlled from room temperature to 120C, including Lid, Ceramic Spool, and Metal Liner. Setting these components at elevated temperatures before processing will reduce by-product coating speed on chamber walls and stabilize chamber conditions for the first couple of runs after the tool was at a stand-by state for a long time.

Training: AJA SP-2 Sputtering System Training - LISE G07 (CNS Cleanroom)
Trainer: Ed Macomber
The SP-2 system is a 6-gun magnetron sputtering machine with (3) RF guns and (3) DC guns to cover a range of metals, semi-conductors, and dielectric materials, including Au, Pt, and magnetics. Sputtering materials are loaded into the system every other week on an "as-requested" basis. This means you may wait up to four weeks (or more) for your material depending on system demand at the time. Substrate pre-cleaning, heating, co-sputtering, and reactive sputtering are all available on this system.

RIE 11 is used for diamond etch only!

The Versaline RIE is an Inductive Coupled Plasma Etching System with a maximum ICP source power of 1,200W and a maximum substrate bias power of 600W. The system is configured to handle 4 wafers and equipped with mechanical clamping and backside helium heat-conducting features. Its substrate temperature can be controlled from 10C to180C. In addition, temperatures of three other components inside the chamber can also be controlled from room temperature to 120C, including Lid, Ceramic Spool, and Metal Liner. Setting these components at elevated temperatures before processing will reduce by-product coating speed on chamber walls and stabilize chamber conditions for the first couple of runs after the tool was at a stand-by state for a long time.

Training: Sharon EE-3 e-beam evaporator training - We meet in the cleanroom PVD bay (last bay inside of LISE G07)
Trainer: Ed Macomber
Please read the training description all the way through:
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 ~1.5 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).
Once you sign up, you will receive the training confirmation email which will contain links to documents including the SOP. Please be sure to review the SOP BEFORE the training.

Training: XeF2 Etcher Training - CNS Cleanroom at the tool
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.

Training: ALD-2 GEMStar ALD Training - Wet Processing Bay - CNS cleanroom
Trainer: Mughees Khan
This training introduces users protocols needed to operate ALD-2. This system is primarily used for depositing conducting metal nitride and potentially pure metal films with good uniformity, conformality, and material purity. Deposition rates are slow, in the range of 1-3 per minute, but extremely high-aspect-ratio fill (40:1) is easily achievable. Currently, only WNx is available. In addition, Al2O3 can also be deposited on this tool.
TimeMax AttendeesAvailableLISE Cleanroom Users ONLY
9:00 am - 10:00 am
prerequisite: Introduction to Thin Film Growth and Processing
