New group members

Introduction for new group members to Physics of Nanodevices

When first arriving at the group, the following should happen:
(most should be done together with / by the direct daily supervisor)

Visit Johan Holstein and explicitly ask that he gives this new person his short lab-tour and introduction aimed at making sure that the new person is well-informed about all basic rules concerning lab safety.

Extra note on lab safety: Besides various other dangerous chemicals that you may come across during clean room work, persons working with GaAs should note the following.
GaAs cleaving: always wear breathing protection!
GaAs etching, make sure the fumes stay in the clean bench, away from where you breath.
Breathing GaAs dust / small particles / vapors from chemical rections with GaAs is VERY UNHEALTHY.
Ask Johan for instructions.

Make a group tour to get to know all other group members and rooms and labs of our group in particular make sure all technicians, Anna, and the staff get to know a new person on the first day.

Visit group secretary Anna McEwan to fill out various forms, and getting a key-card to enter the building.

Get a desk and a PC, visit Johan Holstein (for Bachelor and FIT student only when a fre place is available).

Get those keys that you need for rooms and labs of the group, by a visit to Johan Holstein.

At some point, get the door key-card also authorized for entering optics labs or the Zernike cleanroom

If the person will work with lasers, you must also read and follow the instructions on this page
http://www.quantumdevices.nl/intraweb/lab-safety

Give the new person instructions and password for using the QD Y-drive, and other intra-net and wiki-web-pages at FND, see
http://nanodevices.nl/

Ask Anna to add the new person to the listings with group members, and group e-mail lists, including the FND e-mail list.

Ask Tom to add the new person to the listings with QD team members, and the QD e-mail list.

Ask Tom to add the new person as one who has access to the Y-drive of the QD team.

For new PhD students and postdocs only:
You will at some point get a group task, and you will probably become the manager for one of the experimental setup. A list with all these taks and setup managers is on the intra-net pages of http://nanodevices.nl/.


Daily and weekly meetings in the life of FND group members

Daily
10:30 Coffee or tea (and bring cake on all suitable occasions)

Around 12:00 Lunch

15:30 Coffee or tea

Weekly
Thursday at 13:00 (most of the weeks, but sometimes on another day!) – QD team meeting in Caspar’s office.

Tuesdays at 16:00 – FND group talk, a group member giving a 30 min. presentation on his or her research (for location see http://nanodevices.nl/)

Wednesday at 9:00 – FND group meeting, bi-weekly either only short SCIENCE presentations
or a short group meeting to discuss ORGANIZATIONAL & TECHNICAL issues, and then short SCIENCE talks
(for room and program see http://nanodevices.nl/)

There are several other weekly meetings of small research teams with the supervising straff member (spins in GaAs team with Caspar, graphene team with Bart, BEEM-STM team with Tamalika, etc.

Thursday at 16:00 (Coffee and cookies 15:30)- Colloquium (lecture hall 5111.0080), for the program see
Zernike Institute colloquium web page and Physics colloquium web page.
