ABSTRACT
The article describes a hybrid molecular-ruler approach developed at the Pennsylvania State University which achieves sub-30 nm patterning over a full water. It shows how electron-beam lithography or other methods create the first level of metallic features. A final etching process transfers the metallic pattern into the quartz substrate.
