Agilent And Stanford U. Investigate Unique Nano Devices

Agilent Technologies Inc. is collaborating with Stanford University in a research program dedicated to exploring a new class of nano-scale devices using combinations of the scanning probe microscope (SPM) and atomic layer deposition (ALD). Allegedly, the research will enable the rapid prototyping and characterization of nano-scale devices with breakthroughs in sub 10-nm scale. The program focuses on the integration of ALD, a thin-film technique capable of sub-nanometer precision in thickness, with the nanometer lateral resolution SPM in a drive to extend the capability of scanning probe techniques to prototyping and device fabrication.
