Overview of Nanofabrication Techniques – Part 1

This is the first talk of a two-part series on nanofabrication. The goal of this series, as the title suggests, is to give a broad overview of the different techniques; as a result, details will inevitably be skipped. Techniques of deposition, etching, and patterning were covered in this (i.e. first) part. An in-depth discussion of patterning sophisticated structures will be covered in part 2 of this series.
