Within the Nanostructuring Lab, various substrates – conventional and unconventional – have to be structured by high resolution electron-beam lithography. The density and area size of the written pattern varies from application to application. Diverse resists have to be used, acting either as etching or lift-off mask. Facing a large variety of combinations, we have to challenge electron beam lithography.
