Garry Bordonaro



Cornell University

Photolithography Engineer

Garry has been a Photolithographic Process Engineer at CNF since 1993.  He divides his time between processes using DNQ-Novolak resists in both contact and projection photolithography, and DUV processes for our ASML PAS 5500/300C stepper.  He also devotes time to CAD design, mask making, simulations using PROLITH X4 by KLA-Tencor, and general processing.  In his spare time he tours the world as a musician with Metal rock bands.
