Allows controlled attachment of nano-objects to be performed weeks apart in any lab Scientists at Georgia Tech have developed a nanolithographic technique that can produce high-resolution patterns of at least three different chemicals on a single chip at writing speeds of up to one millimeter per second. The chemical nanopatterns can be tailor-designed with any desired shape and have been shown to be sufficiently stable so that they can be stored for weeks and then used elsewhere. The...

Looking sharp and looking for light - Berkeley Lab researchers have engineered a new class of bowtie-shaped devices that capture, filter and steer light at the nanoscale. These "nano-colorsorter" devices act as antennae to focus and sort light in tiny spaces, a useful technique for harvesting broadband light for color-sensitive filters and detectors. Currently, optical fibers employ light to transport data with very high bandwidth, but the technique hits a roadblock as light is squeezed into...

U.S. scientists say they're using a fusion-energy research method to create extremely thin plasma beams for a new class of nanolithography. The Purdue University researchers say a new class of nanolithography is needed to make future computer chips We can't make devices much smaller using conventional lithography, so we have to find ways of creating beams having more narrow wavelengths, said Professor Ahmed Hassanein. He said the new plasma-based lithography under development generates...
