Application Note: Ultra-High Resolution Pattern Transfer

High-resolution lithography has played a central role in the nanotechnology revolution of the past decade. While ultra-high resolution lithography (<50 nm) is the focus of many research and industrial efforts, pattern transfer – the subsequent step to lithography – presents many challenges of its own. This application note shows how we can combine the capabilities

NanoFrazor for Atomic Silicon Quantum Dots (ASiQDs)

In the last weeks, another NanoFrazor system from Heidelberg Instruments was installed in Canada at the University of Alberta/NRC, where it will be used for fabricating atom-scale electronics together with the company QuantumSilicon Inc. (QSi). QSi’s atomically precise lithographic techniques, alongside machine learning techniques, have enabled the fabrication of truly perfect atom-defined patterns on silicon

Application Note: Non-invasive Nanolithography

Thermal scanning probe lithography (t-SPL), enabled by NanoFrazor, uses a heatable ultrasharp tip for simultaneous patterning and inspection of nanostructures in thermal resists. Thanks to its non-invasive patterning principle, namely the lack of charged particles, the NanoFrazor technology allows for the fabrication of novel nanodevices with material systems and architectures that would otherwise not be
