Abstract:
A pioneering fabrication technique developed by NPL and the University of Surrey can mill 3D profiles with unrivalled accuracy.

Nano-Vitruvian Man

UK | Posted on January 21st, 2010

This new technique is capable of milling structures on the nanometer scale in all three dimensions. The ability to control the accuracy in the z-direction, offers a clear advantage over existing alternative techniques.

The technique opens up a range of possible device applications, particularly in the field of optics and calibration standards for microscopy.
