Nanofabrication via Atom Optics with Chromium


Through the use of light forces exerted by near-resonant laser light, chromium atoms are focused as they deposit onto a substrate, forming nanometer-scale structures on the surface. The laser light is in the form of a standing wave, in which each node acts as an atom-optical "lens." The result is a highly accurate array of lines with a periodicity of /2… (More)
