How a microfabrication researcher uses SEM as a technique to verify nanoscale structures

By Jake Wilkinson - Mar 21, 2019

Microfabrication, the creation of microscale structures and features, is an essential technique for the creation of next-generation semiconductors, processors and the ‘lab-on-a-chip’ microfluidic systems found in chemical analysis systems that can fit in the palm of your hand.

Why SEM is the go-to technology for microfabrication evaluation

By Jake Wilkinson - May 19, 2017

The world of microfabrication is in a constant state of flux. With new technologies, new applications and more difficult problems to be solved, microfabrication is developing at such a speed that it will soon touch all our lives. In the past, microfabrication has been limited to using carbon and semi-conductor materials. But now, new commercial laser techniques, such as those used in the Technology & Applications Center (TAC) at Newport Corporation, are expanding the scope of microfabrication. The range of materials that can be worked on has been extended into polymers, composites, dielectrics and even ceramics.
