New Technique Creates Scalable Manufacturing of Nanoshapes 10nm Wide
Researchers at the NSF-funded Nanosystems Engineering Research Center (NERC) for Nanomanufacturing Systems for Mobile Computing and Mobile Energy Technologies (NASCENT) have identified a technique to create scalable manufacturing ultra-high-resolution cross nanoshapes as narrow as 10 nm. This was accomplished through a partnership with Zyvex Labs, a Dallas-based microchip manufacturer.
The Center and Zyvex identified a technique for producing nanoimprint lithography templates, which is now difficult and expensive, into a scalable manufacturing process. Making this repeatable and cost-effective is essential to improving the performance, stability, and life of random access memory (RAM) found in mobile electronic devices.
