## Option 1 - get enough of the SEM fixed to operate manually
## Option 2 - get the full SEM working
## Option 3 - get the obviously broken part fabricated and replace it (part on back with dent in back of the SEM)
## Option 4 - do Project Awesome fundraising project
## Option 5 - the sputtering system issue needs to be resolved as part of the microfab process
## Option 6 - a cleaning chamber issue needs to be resolved as part of the microfab process
## Option 7 - working with hydrogen chloride indoors to etch glass issue needs to be resolved as part of the microfab process
## Option 8 - decide on wet etching vs. dry etching
## Option 9 - "rent" Ethan's personal-use SEM (assuming its working)
# Use The-Next-Best-Thing
## Option 1 - Sonic 8K - can -- stick PCB to layers of resin directly to fabricate things at 28 microns
