Nanopatterning helps in reducing the usage of radiation-based nanolithography techniques.
The first four layers contain more than 60,000 analog images of pages of books, photographs, illustrations, and documents -- etched as 150 to 200 dpi, at increasing levels of magnification, by optical nanolithography.
The back of the device uses nanolithography technology to develop an invisible nanotexture on the body.
Thin-film applications are attractive for nanolithography and patterning due to their ability to form periodic 5 to 50 nm self-assembled structures.
Piezoelectric motors are used in microscopy, robotics, photographic equipment, nanometrology, nanolithography, nanoprint, microdosing, etc.
The technology lowers manufacturing costs, reduces processing times and improves quality assurance for applications in automotive, micro-embossing, nanolithography and thin film ablation.
Their multiple-patented nanolithography technology, called NanoFrazor, was originally invented at IBM Research Zurich as a successor of a new concept for data storage - the so called Millipede memory.
