Vistec Lithography Inc. has recently received an order from the Paul Scherrer Institute (Switzerland) for a Vistec EBPG5000plus electron beam lithography system.

PSI Order for Vistec

Germany, USA, Switzerland | Posted on May 26th, 2008

The Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) holds a prominent position within the Swiss research and education environment. As a user laboratory the PSI develops and operates complex research facilities and equipment to serve both the R&D sector and the industry.

The new electron-beam lithography system will be installed at the Laboratory for Micro - and Nanotechnology (LMN) of the Paul Scherer Institute. It is required for the research on the optic, electronic, and magnetic properties of nanostructures. PSI's large-scale experimental facilities and specialized nanofabrication technologies available at LMN offer unique possibilities for these investigations. In addition, advanced nanodevices such as diffractive x-ray optical elements will be fabricated for internal and external customers. "The system will help us to keep track of our challenging research roadmap" says Dr. Christian David, Nanopatterning Group Manager at the LMN.

The EBPG5000plus is in line with other Vistec electron-beam lithography systems already installed at leading edge research institutes worldwide. Based on reliable and well-proven system architecture, the system provides a spot size down to <2.5nm at 100keV beam energy, thus allowing nano-lithography structures smaller than 8nm to be routinely generated. As a result of its high flexibility and easy-to-use software the EBPG5000plus has become the "system of choice" in the research community.

"We are extremely proud to have received this order from the Paul Scherrer Institute, one of the leading European research institutes. This will continue our successful cooperation into the future", says Mike Butler, Product Manager for Gaussian Beam Systems at Vistec Lithography Inc.
