[ News, Science / Tech, March 6 2008] Scientists develop nano-patterning technology for ultra small devices

A new nano-patterning method has been developed using electron microscopes and lithograph technology that opens new horizons for the building of ultra small devices of the future, Korean scientists said Thursday (Mar. 6).

The team led by Seoul National University professor Kim Ki-bum said the Atomic Image Projection Electron-beam Lithography (AIPEL) makes use of natural patterns found in everyday objects at the atomic level to create so-called quantum dots and lines that can be used on a 10 nanometers scale or smaller.
