30 May 2017 Denton E14 Denton Sputter target change: June 1st in the morning, ITO replace ZnO
26 May 2017 Parylene Vacuum Leak Fixed

The tool is back up.

Please, inspect the bottom part of the baffle, the one that goes into the furnace, every time you clean the tool after use. If there happens to be accumulation of parylene there, it may become impossible to pull out the baffle, and this may create a vacuum leak or another problem at the joint between the chamber bottom plate and the furnace. The accumulation of the parylene at the bottom of the baffle should not exceed the thickness of the brown capton tape filling the gap between the baffle and the chamber bottom plate.

25 May 2017 Denton E14 Denton Sputter target change: May 26, RF (cathode 1)- ZnO, DC1 (cathode 2)- In, DC2(cathode 3)- Cr

Target change is scheduled on May 25 in the morning. Cr will replace In on DC1.
