SESSION 3: Nanofabrication with RAITH EBL and FIB equipment
Electron Beam Lithography and Focused Ion Beam Nanofabrication are fundamental techniques for nanofabrication in research, development and production. This workshop is targeted on those who are interested in Electron Beam Lithography or FIB Nanofabrication and would like to learn how the Raith solutions help to solve state-of-the-art nanofabrication tasks. Raith Workshop is an excellent opportunity to interact with like-minded professionals and discuss the latest developments within the community. Invited customers will present their work in the fields of Graphene, Photonics, Plasmonics, electronics and other.
The workshop is split into 3 different sections :
- Introduction and overview talk about current nanopatterning technologies, process technology, nanofabrication trends and products
