More NanoFrazor systems in the UK

Two more NanoFrazor systems were installed in England at Queen Mary University of London and at the University of Liverpool. Recently, our engineers Jonas Vergés and Myriam Käppeli installed the systems on-site and trained many different users for a broad range of applications.

At Queen Mary University of London, the NanoFrazor will be used for research ranging from biochemical patterning to nanoelectronics: The group of Dr. Thomas Iskratsch is using the NanoFrazor to prepare specific sites for cell adhesion (cf. fluorescence microscope image). Thibault Degousee from the group of Dr. Jan Mol will be preparing electrodes for nanoscale material research.

At the University of Liverpool, the NanoFrazor was an ideal choice because they had no easy access to cleanroom equipment, and therefore the straightforward sample preparation and handling was particularly appreciated.

The installation of the NanoFrazor expanded the range of techniques they can use in-house, cancelling out the reliance on external collaborations with other universities with nanofabrication facilities.

Another great argument in favor of the NanoFrazor was based on its fast prototyping capabilities. The researchers at University of Liverpool work on a range of topics like molecular electronics, metallic nanowires, and plasmonic cavities, and therefore the possibility of having an instrument that can prototype a device in just a few minutes has already improved their device making: It is faster, much easier to align with underlying features and finally enables iterative device development with minimal effort.   

Users from the groups of Dr. Liam O’BrienDr. Frank JaeckelDr. Andrea Vezzoli, and Dr. Ian Sandall were trained on the use of the system.

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
