Electron beam lithography and pattern transfer on membrane grids for transmission electron microscopy

We describe a fabrication process for electron beam lithography (EBL) and the following pattern transfer steps on transmission electron microscope (TEM) grids. For demonstration purposes, we use commercial off-the-shelf TEM grids consisting of a thin suspended silicon nitride membrane on a silicon frame supporting substrate. For the pattern transfer, we demonstrate both an additive patterning technique with metal deposition and lift-off, and a subtractive patterning technique with reactive ion etching. This process could enable direct ...

Efficient removal of ZEP ebeam resist after dry etching

Resist removal is an essential step for multi-layer lithography processes where a clean and contamination-free surface is essential to avoid shadow etching patterns from resist leftovers. We show that a short \mathrm{O_2} plasma exposure followed by a full NMP solution cycle removes the resist fully and leaves the surface contamination free.

Transition metal dichalcogenide metamaterials with atomic precision

Here we will discuss our novel anisotropic wet-etching method that allows scalable fabrication of TMD metamaterials with atomic precision, combined with traditional nanolithography techniques.[1] We show that TMDs can be etched along certain crystallographic axes, such that the obtained edges are atomically sharp and exclusively zigzag-terminated. This allows us to fabricate interesting hexagonal nanostructures of predefined order and complexity, including a few nanometer thin nanoribbons and nanojunctions.

Fabrication of patterned silicon nitride nanomembranes at the LKB

Thin silicon nitride nanomembranes are attracting growing attention following a novel fabrication method which consists in patterning them with a phononic crystal. In engineering the vibrational mode profile, the dominant mechanisms of loss, radiation loss and intrinsic material loss, are simultaneously addressed and mitigated. The fabrication method employed by the optomechanics group at the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel is here presented, only employing basic lithography techniques and wet etching processes.
