Producing Nanostructures Cost-Effectively

Press Release / September 03, 2020

How can structures smaller than one micrometer be generated? And how can even smaller structures of less than 100 nanometers be produced without great effort? Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have developed several technologies to answer such questions. With these technologies, they can simulate, produce and measure periodic microstructures. They use phase-shifting transmission masks that can efficiently generate nanostructures down to 28 nanometers.
