Home > Press > Nanotech Paper: Complex 3D-Nano Patterns with Indentation Lithography and Piezo Technology

Abstract:
A collaboration between the Whitesides Group at Harvard University and CSM Instruments has culminated in an important advance in lithography of different materials at the nanoscale. The motivation for this development was the ability to produce unique lithographical patterns of different shapes and sizes for use in research applications (e.g. lab-on-a-chip) where conventional techniques such as electron-beam lithography (EBL) and photolithography cannot be used. The new method utilizes the standard Ultra Nanoindentation Tester (UNHT) and the Nano Scratch Tester (NST) without anymodification.

Nanotech Paper: Complex 3D-Nano Patterns with Indentation Lithography and Piezo Technology

Auburn, MA | Posted on April 22nd, 2011

The precise shape of the patterns is achieved with a PI (Physik Instrumente) P-733.2CD piezo nanopositioning scanning stage which is mounted directly on the Open Platform and allows sub-nanometer
positioning resolution in the X and Y axes.
