The only thing I was impressed by was they could use few keV electrons, but the lithographic result is still too familiar, very rough lines and non-uniform dots in very thin resist. It is not a fault of the technique but a natural consequence of electrons being free to move after being released or injected in a film.

I love the idea of "Extreme Ultraviolent UV" :)

Is resolution of 9nm possible from other other technologies like Photomask ? If answer is no then inspite of throughput issues e-beam resolution will become attractive.

The abstract read that all structures with 15 nm hp and above were fully resolved, but smaller ones had some resist residues. 15 nm hp is also about the limit current demonstrated by spacer etching.

To speed up the e-beam and make it more shaper reaching 9nm is excellent research and the scanning method instead of integral method made this win for the researchers.

I think they will have problem with positive charging of the surface.

I have no doubt provided it is from MIT. Those guys are awesome.

Now it makes me wonder, why not use a SEM and low-k as resist?

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
