HacDC inquiry-level Microfabrication class

Dates and Times

The class will be held remote (and possibly in the Space) bi-weekly on Mondays ("Monday Microfabrication") 7 to 9 PM.

Resources

  • Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)
    • Ethan currently has Cambridge SEM (for repairs)
    • Ethan's SEM
  • Resin 3D printers (personally-owned)

Approaches, project implementation

  1. Collaborative - work as a group on the same project (something new, something done before)
  2. Independent - everyone work independently on their projects

Approaches, tech implementation

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