Overview of Nanofabrication Techniques – Part 2

This is a continuation of the discussion of nanofabrication from the previous talk. This part primarily focused on various techniques of fabricating structures relevant to transport experiments. In particular, fabrication of metallic gates and contacts for various nanostructures, such as quantum wells, nanowires, quantum dots, and carbon nanotubes (CNTs), were discussed. These different techniques were a variation on the use of resists in combination with electron beam lithography (EBL). There was also a brief discussion of the importance of grounding the sample before/after/during scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and/or EBL.
