Our scientific process entirely depends on being able to fabricate nanoscale devices using cleanroom techniques such as lithography and thin film evaporation. At Pitt we are lucky to have a modern nanofabrication facility as part of Petersen Institute of NanoScience and Engineering (PINSE).
I am proud to report the first electron beam lithography results. In this scanning electron microscope image we show the alignment markers which set the coordinate system for synchronizing multiple layers of device fabrication. More to come! Image by Zhaoen Su.
