Speaker's Bio:

Fabian Könemann studied physics in Aachen before he moved to Zurich to start his PhD at IBM Research and ETH Zurich. Fabian received ”Best Poster” and “Best Paper” awards as well as the “IBM Outstanding Technical Achievement Award” for his research work in which he explored advanced nanoscale thermometry using the heatable NanoFrazor cantilevers. He designed and built a sophisticated UHV experimental setup to perform these experiments.

At Heidelberg Instruments Nano, Fabian brings in his broad talents and experience to improve the NanoFrazor technology.  


Webinar Series description

The “NanoFrazor Technology” webinars will explain the main features and limitations of NanoFrazor lithography. They will be hosted by the key experts of our R&D teams. You will learn how our technology works, and where and why it is superior or inferior to conventional nanolithography techniques. We will also share the results and insights of our ongoing development projects.

The “NanoFrazor Applications” series will show examples from different application fields, where the NanoFrazor was used to fabricate unique nanopatterns and devices. The guest speakers - scientists who actively use NanoFrazor - will talk about their work and recent results.

The “NanoFrazor Sales” webinars will focus on NanoFrazor products. We will talk about hardware components and software features of the NanoFrazor systems. We will also cover the cost-of-ownership and how to receive a quick return on investment. Finally, we will also offer a dedicated webinar where you will learn about the various funding options for NanoFrazor systems and how to maximize your chances to get your funding proposal accepted.


Test yourself and win! After each webinar, you can test what you have learned in a short multiple-choice questions challenge. With 10 or more successful tests, you will receive a small prize and a unique Nanofabrication Guru certificate.
