Equipment status

May 4, 2018. UPDATE. Hitachi will come to campus on May 14th to perform annual maintenance on the FESEM and work on the FIB imaging problem.  I am not sure when they will come on Monday so I will leave the calendar open in the morning.

May 4, 2018. The S-TEM is down with a vacuum leak.  The FEI engineer will  be here Monday to begin repair.

A purchase order for the FIB repair has been sent to Hitachi.  We are working on a schedule for the visit.  Next week is out due to the cooling water outage.  I’ll get back to you when we schedule a visit to do routine maintenance on the FESEM and repair to the FIB.  It will all be done in one week.
