Focused Ion Beam Nanofabrication - new EKB available now!Back

This EKB provides an introduction to nanofabrication applications of focused ion beam (FIB), explaining how the technique works, outlining the kind of structures it can produce, and detailing how patterning can be controlled. The briefing outlines practical issues relating to FIB nanofabrication and describes potential problems that may arise, as well as tips to resolve them. The EKB also includes some examples of how FIB is being used in research, plus details of how the technique will advance over the next few years.
