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.

Dependence of stress in thin Al films on deposition and post-deposition temperature conditions

Here we present our study of the stress dependence in Al thin films on deposition conditions. We consider two types of Al 100-nm thick films: E-beam evaporated films and films obtained by magnetron sputtering. We investigate the Al film stress hysteresis in the environment with slowly increasing and decreasing temperature, i.e. during the gradual annealing. We consider the effect of deposition temperature on the film stress and grain size. We conclude that the annealing of ...

Bulk and Sleeve Electron Beam Lithography for Silicon Nitride Photonic Crystals

This is a method to improve the quality of lithography - in particular electron beam lithography (EBL). During an EBL exposure the electrons undergo different scattering processes. One scattering process that plays an important role is the back scattering of the electrons from the substrate or different stacks of thin film present in the exposure stack. As a result the actual dose that the resist sees is quite different that the original exposure dose. This ...

Fabrication of high-aspect ratio Si_3N_4 nanobeam resonators

We describe the fabrication of high-stress Si_3N_4 nanobeam resonators with high aspect ratios exceeding lengths of 3.5mm. The lowest order out-of-plane modes of these nanobeams have quality factors of Q\geq 10^6 with fundamental mode frequencies lying in the range of 80-500kHz. The beams are fabricated from high-stress, 20-50nm-thick films of Si_3N_4 deposited via LPCVD on standard silicon wafers. The beams are patterned via electron beam lithography and deep reactive ion etching. The underlying silicon is ...
