Nanostencil: Tool for nanopatterning unconventional materials

The nanostencil tool has been further developed to allow unconventional materials to be deposited and structured on a sub-100 nm scale. The tool has been used to produce the various crossed-geometry structures of the NICE project, among them the first structures consisting of different materials (metal and fullerenes). In the future the nanostencil will be used as a flexible prototype nanopatterning tool, capable of producing very small structures of materials, which cannot be patterned by standard lithography methods.
