  Our nanolithography work is focused on electron and ion beam processing in reactive gaseous environments. These techniques involve beam-induced decomposition of surface-adsorbed precursor molecules into reactive fragments which modify solids irradiated by charged particle beams. We use them for localized, … Continue reading
