Video: Break Sub-10 nm Fabrication with Helium, Neon, and Gallium Beams

Do you need to break the 10 nm barrier for your device fabrication? In this video, you will go inside ZEISS ORION NanoFab to learn how three ion beams and a gas injection system are used in nanofabrication. The gallium beam is used to quickly remove bulk material. The inert neon beam refines the design. Finally, the helium beam makes the finest cuts, completing the device.

Reference List - Gas Ion Imaging

This reference list covers over 400 publications investigating nanomaterials, semiconductor structures, circuit editing and analysis, nanopore milling, graphene imaging and structuring, high temperature superconductor fabrication, plasmonic device structuring, and biological material imaging. The instrumentation that enabled this research is gas field ion beam microscopy, providing damage-free imaging of nano­meter features and nanofabrication of sub-10 nm structures.  

Application Note - Imaging Polymers with a Helium Beam

Discover in this application note how ZEISS ORION NanoFab provides high resolution imaging of complex polymer structures with high resolution, high contrast, and no charging artifacts. Learn more about the helium ion beam’s advantages that are attributed to the unique sample interaction of helium ions with low atomic number materials, providing new insights into polymers.

X-ray Nanotomography in the Laboratory

X-ray microscopy (XRM) enables non-destructive 3D investigation of a variety of samples across multiple length scales. Learn in this technology note more about how nanoscale XRM with resolution down to tens of nanometers has long been developed at synchrotron radiation facilities, driven by the development of advanced X-ray optics such as Fresnel zone plates. ZEISS Xradia Ultra is the first instrument to bring this capability to the user’s own laboratory. In this paper, we discuss the technology behind Xradia Ultra and resulting performance, including X-ray optics, energy, and contrast modes.  

Technology Note - ZEISS GeminiSEM 500

This technology note describes nanometer scale EDS analysis using low-voltage FE-SEM and a windowless EDS detector. The investigation of morphology and chemistry of materials by combining scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) is a well-known method. Characterizing structures on a nano-scale is a challenge because the resolution of EDS analysis is typically limited to micrometers. High resolution low voltage SEM and a windowless EDS detector, used for this study, push the resolution down to 10 nm.
