 Rocks the Competition

DLS laser extension goes beta

Nanofabrication of high-quality devices on two-dimensional materials presents daunting challenges. Spectra Research Corporation is pleased to highlight, however, advances made by SRC supplier SwissLitho that have mitigated the challenges. As recently demonstrated by SwissLitho customers, and as reported in respected publications, 2D nanodevices made with NanoFrazor lithography significantly outperform devices made with electron beam technology, their main competition. This heralds a change in 2D nanodevice fabrication.

Breakthrough single-layer MoS2 nanodevices: Fabricating single-layer MoS2 and WSe2 transistors with NanoFrazor lithography

Dr. Xiaorui Zheng from Prof. Elisa Riedo’s lab at the New York University and their collaborators have demonstrated single-layer MoS2 and WSe2 transistors showing highly linear I-V curves, low contact resistance with vanishingly low Schottky barriers, and exceptionally high on-off ratios.  A paper published in Nature Electronics describes how to use NonaoFrazor to fabricate such high-quality devices. The key advantage of using thermal probe lithography as compared to electron beam lithography (EBL) is avoiding contamination from resist residues and simple and precise patterning of the contacts and the top gate thanks to the in-situ imaging capability. With this clear proof of superior device performance with even less effort, it’s expected that the NanoFrazor will replace EBL as the state-of-art method for making devices with this class of promising and sensitive materials.

The NanoFrazor Explore grows more muscle for nanofabrication and rapid prototyping

 The new DLS (Direct Laser Sublimation) system SwissLitho developed with Heidelberg Instruments is now ready for integration into NanoFrazor Explore systems. A few facilities such as Harvard’s CNS and FZ Jülich HNF will start beta-testing of this integrated mix & match extension this spring.

SwissLitho is excited about this because the focused laser of the DLS extension evaporates the resist just like the NanoFrazor tip does, but on larger scale. This means that with the DLS extension, you can pattern features such as contact wires and pads much faster than using the ultra-sharp NanoFrazor tip.

This integrated extension uses the same platform and software for mix & match lithography. The laser writes directly into the same thermosensitive resist layer (evaporation, i.e. no wet development required), so the DLS-written microstructures can be directly imaged and perfectly aligned with the NanoFrazor-written nanostructures. The same pattern transfer processes like lift-off have to be applied only once for both the micro- and the nanofeatures.

PHI WEBINAR SERIES: Applications of TOF-SIMS Tandem MS Imaging for Industrial Problem Solving

 

Register for Applications of TOF-SIMS Tandem MS Imaging for Industrial Problem Solving
Event status: Not started (Register)
Date and time:

Central Daylight Time (Chicago, GMT-05:00)

Duration:
1 hour
Description:
Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) is a powerful analytical technique with submicron spatial resolution, ppm sensitivity, and the ability to detect both elemental and molecular species on surfaces. One limitation of TOF-SIMS is that spectra are often difficult to interpret, especially for real-world industrial samples that have a complex mixture of chemicals on the surface. The TOF-SIMS spectrum contains the fragmentation pattern of all the different molecular species on the surface added together. The recent development of parallel imaging MS/MS has greatly simplified the interpretation of TOF-SIMS spectra. By selecting a single precursor ion from the complex TOF-SIMS spectrum and fragmenting it by collision induced dissociation (CID), the clean and unique fragmentation pattern makes identification easy. Several industrial applications will be discussed that demonstrate how MS/MS greatly extends the analytical capability of the TOF-SIMS technique.

RISE -The Complete Picture of Material Properties: Correlative Raman-SEM Imaging

WITec GmbH

Webinar presented by Dr. Ute Schmidt – Applications Manager at WITec GmbH

SCHEDULED TIME : Nov 14 2017 10:00 am

DURATION  : 60 mins

FREE TO REGISTER

RISE – Raman Imaging and Scanning Electron – microscopy is a correlative approach that combines molecular and ultrastructural analysis. With this hybrid technique, information on the chemical composition of a sample provided by the optical Raman microscope is overlaid onto structural features imaged with a high resolution scanning electron microscope. Both methods can be controlled with software and the correlation carried out while the sample remains under vacuum. The integration of both techniques within a single instrument eliminates the necessity of manually locating the same measurement position, a notoriously time-consuming process with separate instruments.

In this webinar, the principles of state-of-the-art confocal Raman imaging as a tool for the analysis of molecular characteristics of a sample will be presented, then the manner in which this information can be linked to structural information acquired with scanning electron microscopy will be demonstrated. The advantages of seamless correlative investigation will be described and shown with several examples.

Raman imaging meets cells and nanomaterials – New perspectives in 3D chemical characterization

WITec Seminar and Workshop

Thursday, October 5 2017
8AM PDT | 11AM EDT | 4PM BST | 5PM CEST
If you’ve already registered, please click here to log in to the webcast.

Spectra Research Corporation (SRC) is pleased to announce an upcoming webcast which will offer a comprehensive overview of the technology and methods of confocal Raman microscopy including 3D correlative Raman imaging integrated with SEM or AFM.

This powerful and increasingly common technique can characterize the components of a sample by looking at the unique “fingerprint” its molecular bonds show as they scatter light. We aim to convey its capability and versatility while making it more accessible. Application examples will focus on cell and tissue research, diagnostics, pharmaceutics and materials science. The non-destructive, label-free and convenient nature of Raman microscopy will be emphasized, showing how samples can be rapidly investigated without specialized, if any, sample preparation. The intuitive software routines for post-processing and data evaluation will also be described, along with the advantages of correlative techniques for structural and molecular analysis. There will be a short introduction from WITec followed by a presentation by Professor Dr. Klaus Gerwert, Chair of the Department of Biophysics at Ruhr-University Bochum, who will present specific approaches and application examples.

During this webcast you will learn/the speakers will address:

  • The theoretical basis and associated hardware and software related to confocal Raman microscopy
  • Possibilities for Raman investigations including several application examples from various fields
  • Correlative Raman imaging and the value of seeing a sample with different methods to understand in more completely

The webcast will last for 60 minutes and there will be an opportunity to ask your questions during the live broadcast!
