Research Community Commitment Community Communication Assistance Awareness
Nanolab Engineers Process and Equipment engineers are here to assist you Each tool has assigned engineers Process/Equipment Engineer 1 is in charge of that equipment Process Engineer 1 approves special processes on equipment
Plan Your Work ! Time = Money Some tools are heavily reserved Plan ahead one week – minimize idle time
Working in the NanoLab Nanolab Rule #1: NEVER WORK ALONE 3rd to last person to leave must go notify the other two!
Working in the NanoLab Entrance Checklist: • Passed the Safety Quiz • There are no announcements preventing lab access • The HazMat alarm is not active • Have blue shoe covers on • No food or drink on person
Gowning Procedure: Top Down Bouffant Cap Bunny Suit Shoe Covers Enter Gowning Shoe Covers Gloves Safety Glasses Complete De-gowning occurs in reverse order
Entering the Lab Area Gowning Checklist: • No chemicals in storage box • Safety Glasses on • Name tag visible on coverall • Changed damaged or stained coveralls/shoes/other gear • Using proper size coverall and shoe cover • Log on at the computer terminal before entering lab
Equipment Qualification Complete Prerequisite Requirements Read the Manual Get Training (Any Qualified Member) Take Equipment Test (520 SDH Front Desk) Oral Qualification (Superuser) When in doubt – ASK STAFF
Complete Prerequisite Qualifications • Many equipment sets have prerequisite qualifications and/or classes offered by staff • Evaporation, SEM, E-beam Litho, and confocal microscopy classes are offered periodically • Some toolsets have gateway tools (e.g. msink 6/8, tystar1-4, Leo SEM)
Read the Manual All major equipment has a lab manual on website Process engineers update manual – send any suggestions to us! Manual inconsistencies are reported on Mercury as process faults
Training – All qualified can train! Check reservations for the tool Find a member using equipment E-mail: <membername>@silicon.eecs.berkeley.edu Request to observe run and get training Each One Teach One – Train someone at least 1x per semester
Take Equipment Test Equipment tests available at 520 SDH (Front Desk) Usually available online via Mercury Specific tests are written only – copies at front desk
Oral Qualification – Superuser Only Check Mercury for superuser names/email E-mail: <membername>@silicon.eecs.berkeley.edu Request qualification. Make reservation with superuser Sometimes process staff are the only superusers
Quality Monitoring • Quality Monitor tracks processes • Data is posted monthly on MercuryWeb
Quality Monitoring • Quality monitor reports show valuable data trends • Reports also show standard process conditions for the monitor
Material and Process Compatibility • The Nanolab is a diverse processing environment • Nanolab materials restrictions are as open as possible • Many processes are very sensitive (e.g., Sinks/Furnaces) • Duplicate process capability allows separation of materials • Materials restrictions are given by tool and group • Materials restricted by: • Substrate, Process, and Maintenance
Ch 1 - Material and Process Compatibility • Chapter 1.7 – Furnace pre-clean & substrate restrictions • Equipment manuals define material compatibility/cleaning • Every piece of equipment has specific material restrictions • Several equipment may have group contamination protocols • Specific tools and processes require specific cleaning
Ch 2 - Working at the Sinks • PPE must be worn when working at the sinks! • Chemically resistant gloves • Face shield • Chemically resistant apron
Ch 2 - Working at the Sinks • Mixing chemistry can get HOT! • Always use caution when adding chemicals and be aware of exothermic reactions • Working at general purpose sinks (MSink16/18) • You MUST be qualified • Describe your processes to each other • Process Tag all work at the station • Do not heat up a solvent directly on the heater chuck
Ch 2 - General Wet Chemistry Cabinets • Located in 582A, 381/383 • Standard chemicals available to members at no charge • Special chemical storage needs pre-approval and label • Use partial bottles first! If empty – ask staff to restock
Ch 2 - Chemical Waste ManagementLog Sheet Every pour requires an entry with a volume!
Ch 3 - Mask Making at MNL MNL provides in-house mask making • L-Edit Layout Software • GCA 3600 Pattern Generator • Refer to MNL Chapter 3 for complete details • Contact Process Engineer Jeff Clarkson for assistance

Ch 5 - Furnaces – AP and LPCVD Tystar 5-7, Dry/Wet Ox, Dopant Diffusion, Anneal, 4”, 6” & 8” wafers Tystar 13-16, Dopant Diffusion, SiC, poly-Si, a-Si, 4” & 6” wafers Tystar 1-4, Dry/Wet Ox, Anneal, Sinter, 4” & 6” wafers Tystar 9-12, Nitride, poly-Si, a-Si, Low-Temp Oxide, 4” & 6” wafers 1. Furnaces are divided into MOS & non-MOS. 2. Substrates must be cleaned before furnace use. Last pre-furnace step: Msink6 for non-metal substrates, and, Msink1 for metal substrates going into metal approved furnaces. 3. III-V compounds are not allowed in any furnace. Tystar 17-20, Nitride, Hi-Temp Oxide, Sinter, Si-Ge, 4” & 6” wafers
Ch 5 - Rapid Thermal Processors RTP3 – Si non-MOS, metals; up to 6” wafers RTP4 – Si MOS, silicidation; up to 6” wafers RTP1 – III-V, PZT, metals; up to 6” wafers RTP2 – III-V; process up to 6” wafers Rapid Thermal Processing has time scales on the order of seconds to reach up to 1100ºC.
