Optical microscope image of a 50 nm PMMA film on a Si substrate, patterned by the π2-Cygni system.
Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a 50 nm-thick PMMA film on Si, patterned with the π2-Cygni system.
Rectangular silicon pillars fabricated by the Cygnus π-Photon exposure tool. After 1 μm x 1 μm openings were produced in 50 nm thick PMMA films, the pillars were produced by a reactive-ion etching process in which an aluminum film served as a mask.
SEM of gold lines formed on Si by electroplating the surface through openings in a PMMA film produced by the π2-Cygni system.
Gold lines formed on Si by electroplating. π2-Cygni system patterned a PMMA film which served as a mask for the electroplating process.
500 nm-diameter aluminum discs fabricated on Si with the π-Photon exposure tool and a liftoff process in which a 50 nm-thick PMMA film served as the photoresist.
3D nanostructure (recorded with a laser profilometer) produced in acrylic (PMMA) by a double exposure with the π2-Cygni photolithographic tool. The time for each exposure step was 1 minute and the diagram is not to scale.
