ORION NanoFab sub-10 nanometer fabrication
Carl Zeiss MicroImaging
The system is the first multi-ion-beam tool based on Gas Field Ion Source (GFIS) technology.
Carl Zeiss Microscopy has unveiled ORION NanoFab, the first multi-ion-beam tool based on Gas Field Ion Source (GFIS) technology.
As a major enhancement to the existing helium ion microscope, ORION NanoFab also utilises neon ions.
The system is therefore capable of providing a complete sub-10 nanometer nanofabrication and sub-nanometer imaging solution for industry, government, and academic research laboratories.
An optional gallium focused ion beam (FIB) column can also be integrated.
“This instrument offers sub-nanometer spatial resolution coupled with an extremely high depth of field, for the study of a wide variety of materials such as carbon based materials, co-polymers, and device structures, and also offers options for a variety of advanced microanalytical techniques,” says Dr. David Joy, Distinguished Scientist at the Center for Nanophase Materials Science (CNMS), Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The neon ion beam offers precise machining and nanofabrication capabilities due to higher sputter yields in ion beam milling and faster resist exposure in ion beam lithography. The helium ion beam allows sub-10 nm nanofabrication as well as high resolution imaging capability in the same instrument.
Researchers have examined the climbing skills of geckos and spiders using the ORION helium ion microscope from Carl Zeiss.
