Laser Tech Training Program
With the current situation regarding On-Campus Educational instruction, the Laser Tech Training Program has been moved to Pasadena City College
Laser and Photonics Technology instructors lead hands-on, laboratory-driven classes, utilizing state-of-the-art industrial equipment, based on the industry-guided photonics curricula written by industry professionals. In addition to laboratory skills, students are offered one-on-one support and career advice, including résumé and LinkedIn profile building.

Nanomachining Using Ions and Lasers
Ms. K.D. Derr, Zeiss
Abstract: Ms. Derr will brief us on two new very remarkable instruments: the new LaserFIB for ZEISS Crossbeam, femtosecond laser for ultrafast material processing of large samples. Fabricate samples on the scale from 10 µm to 1 mm or more. Cut deep cross-section through hard material such as SiC and expose structures of interest directly. When performing laser milling you will easily avoid contamination of your FIB-SEM as the laser is attached to a dedicated chamber which is separated from the main instrument chamber. When you require nanomachining precision, the Orion Nanofab, multi-ion beam platform enables next-generation technology development with 3D analysis, rapid device/circuit prototyping and sub-10 nm node characterization capabilities. Seamlessly switch between gallium, neon and helium ion beams in a single tool for combined highest precision and speed.
