On Aug. 23, Sandia National Laboratories received an ASML Scanner as part of the Sandia Silicon Fabrication Recapitalization (SSiFR) project. Once fully operating, the ASML Scanner will help reduce risks to production, research and development at the Silicon Fab (SiFab), specifically for the W88 ALT 380 and B61-12 LEP. The ASML Scanner is a piece of photolithography equipment which is the main component of the production process.
