Great progress in high resolution lithography

Recently, the research group of Prof. WANG Liang made great progress in 16 nm-resolution lithography. A highly confined electric near field is produced by localized surface plasmon excitation and nanofocusing of the closely-tapered gap. We show contact lithography results with a record 16 nm resolution (FWHM).The corresponding result has been published in Nanotechnology [Nanotechnology 28 (2017) 055302].

we have presented NSOL using bowtie apertures with a sub-15 nm gap, which are fabricated using the backside milling method. Combined with the passive flexure stage for contact control, we have realized a record 16 nm resolution lithography. By further decreasing the gap size of the bowtie aperture via combining the proximity milling technique and optimizing the contact condition, the near-field lithography resolution promises further refinement in the future. This low-cost photolithography scheme can find its potential applications in data storage, energy harvesting, highspeed computation and so on.
