Vistec Lithography Inc. (www.vistec-semi.com) announced today that Micronova Nanofabrication Centre (www.micronova.fi) has selected one of its electron-beam lithography systems. The leading nanotechnology laboratory in Finland aims to use Vistec’s EBPG5000plusES for the design, development and fabrication of micro- and nanosystems. The cutting edge technology is specialized for multi-user environments and is therefore a future-proof match to the needs of Micronova.
At Micronova more than 360 employees and students of different facilities carry out research in diverse fields of nanotechnology. The Finnish institute aims to use the system for research in the fields of nanoelectronics, nanofabrication, microelectronics, nanophotonics and microfabrication. “This state-of-the-art electron-beam lithography system gives us the possibility to continue future-proof research at the very highest level. But not only the characteristics of the system determined our decision also the long term experience of Vistec in this field of research were decisive“, comments Dr. Veli-Matti Airaksinen, director of Aalto Nanofab at Micronova, the acquisition of the new system.
The Vistec EBPG5000pES is a high-performance lithography tool based on reliable and well-proven system architecture. The system is equipped for true 100kV / 1mm performance under regular electron-optical conditions with a wide capability for high throughput applications. Rainer Schmid, General Manager Vistec Lithography, Inc., explains further characteristics: “Its electron-optical column, rated for acceleration voltages of 50 and 100kV, enables the EBPG5000pES to provide a spot size down to <2.2nm. On the other hand nano-lithography structures smaller than 8nm can easily be generated.” Furthermore the system incorporates an interactive graphical user interface (GUI). “With this feature we enable the use for diverse, multiuser environments such as used at huge research institutes like Micronova or universities.”
“Micronova is one of the most scientific nano-research institutes in Europe. Therefore we are glad to have come to this agreement”, comments Schmid the order. By providing a steady growing number of advanced research institutes and universities with electron-beam lithography systems Vistec has demonstrated that its technology is state-of-the-art and best choice. “Vistec is known for its great support to its customers. But not only do our customers benefit from the cooperation, we do it as well. Having such a strong connection to cutting edge research institutes like Micronova enables us to continue the development of our technology to the demands of an even wider target group.”
Micronova Nanofabrication Centre is Finland’s National Research Infrastructure for micro- and nanotechnology, jointly operated by Aalto University and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. Micronova’s activities extend from fundamental physics to device prototyping, applied research and small-scale manufacturing. Technologies developed at Micronova include nanoelectronic and photonic devices, MEMS sensors, particle and X-ray detectors and THz technology.
Aalto University is a new multidisciplinary science and art community merging the strengths of three universities in the fields of science, technology, economics, art and design. Aalto University's cornerstones are its strengths in education and research, and its goal is to become one of the world's top universities. Aalto’s community includes 20,000 students as well as a staff of 4,700 of which 340 are professors.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impac...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of present...

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
