Modeling tools aid in immersion lithography quest
News & Analysis  
9/9/2003   Post a comment
A German company is fielding modeling tools that can help chip makers assess the promise of immersion lithography. Putting a layer of water between a wafer and the stepper lens could extend current 193-nanometer lithographic exposure tools down to the 45-nm chip-manufacturing node and below, experts believe.
Nanocrystal research unraveling nature's secrets
News & Analysis  
9/9/2003   Post a comment
In nature, incredibly complex nanostructures pervade every bulk material, from macroscopic sea shells to microscopic diatoms. But reproducing such atomic accuracy in man-made materials has required costly high-temperature, high-vacuum manufacturing-and the synthetic structures are simpletons compared with nature's creations.
