Photonic Molecules with sub-nanometer precision

New publication: www.nature.com. SwissLitho engineers have collaborated with scientists at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory to fabricate pairs of interacting optical cavities – so called “photonic molecules”. Using NanoFrazor technology, pairs of cavities were fabricated with precisely controlled interaction strength.  Establishing this control over the interaction strength is a key milestone on the road towards quantum […]

Pushing the limits: sub-10nm resolution in silicon

The approach of using two hard mask layers for pattern transfer of high resolution features in PPA resist written with the NanoFrazor has already been proven to be quite successful. Half-pitch patterns of 27.5 nm and 18 nm in Si were demonstrated and published in Nano Letters in 2013 and JVSTB in 2015, respectively. We […]
