WITH SCANNING TIP LITHOGRAPHY IT IS POSSIBLE TO CREATE SUBMICRON FEATURES ON SURFACES IN VACUUM, AMBIENT AIR, AND IN LIQUIDS. THIS TECHNIQUE IS IMPLEMENTED ON INSTRUMENTATION WHICH IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE SCANNING TUNNELING MICROSCOPE. TO CREATE A SUBMICRON FEATURE ON A SURFACE IN SCANNING TIP LITHOGRAPHY A VOLTAGE LARGE ENOUGH TO CAUSE A CHEMI...

Budget: 05/16/88 - 11/15/88

Mechanical imaging systems such as the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) and the atomic force microscope (AFM) have tremendous potential for imaging biological samples and biomolecules. STM and AFM have atomic resolution and are demonstrated to work in ambient atmosphere, liquid and vacuum. A major advantage of these techniques over conventio...
