|This image of Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man is milled into a piece of silicon by a focused ion beam instrument and is 15 µm in diameter|
A pioneering fabrication technique developed by NPL and the University of Surrey can mill 3D profiles with unrivalled accuracy.
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.
