The Laurell Spinner Laurell spinner is located in the ROBIN lab classified as general. A great variety of materials, that are not allowed to be spun in the clean room, can be spun here. This new tool replaces the old Solitec spinner and it is, as always, associated with the Solvent 94 bench. In order to reserve this tool users must reserve Solvent 94 bench. The main uses of this spinner are for soft lithography, polyimide processing and surface protection for dicing. There are just a few photoresist available for this tool, but users can bring private photoresist, or other spinnable materials provided they are approved.
