Learn how to achieve versatile results faster, cleaner, cheaper and more reliable than ever before

New nanoFIB Whitepaper available!

Raiths nanoFIB column is the heart of the FIB-centric FIB-SEM system VELION. The proprietary source and column technology advances FIB to the performance level of a lithography tool and truly defines a new state of the art in FIB technology.

In a newly released whitepaper you can now learn, how to utilize Raith’s nanoFIB column with its long-term stable ion beam current at lowest position drift and lowest beam tails to advance FIB nanofabrication to the level of a lithography system.

Unique column design and technology

The uniquesness of the nanoFIB column lies in its design and technology which was developed with a true focus on nanofabrication. Besides enabling different patterning techniques such as milling, implantation, gas assisted deposition and more, it ensures the critical requirements

  • Long-term stability,
  • placement accuracy,
  • high resolution,
  • automation, and
  • versatility.

FIB nanofabrication beyond gallium

On top of that the unique IONselect technology enhances the nanoFIB column to employ new ion species beyond gallium. With a liquid metal ion source and a ExB filter, easy and fast switiching between different ion species becomes possible, opening up a whole new world of opportunities in focused ion beam nanofabrication.

A new whitepaper is now available which explains the principle and possibilities of and with the nanoFIB column. It describes the technology of the nanoFIB and how it enables you to achieve cutting-edge application results.
