Thermal Scanning Probe Lithography: Continuing the Path to Semiconductor Miniaturization

Apr 2019| SMC116A| BCC Publishing

Report Highlights

The idea of massively parallel atomic probe arrays has been around for decades, but can the tip speed, durability and finished results be scaled commercially?

If so, advantages over electron beam methods, especially in semiconductor manufacture, may be worth the efforts – ambient versus vacuum atmosphere, 2D transistors quality improvements improving flow of electrons at the intersection of metal and the 2D substrate, easily image the 2D semiconductor and then pattern the electrodes where desired, lower operational costs, reduced power consumption, and so forth.
