    Abstract. We study different aspects of atom lithography with metastable neon atoms. Proximity printing of stencil masks is used to test suitable resists that are sensitive to the internal energy of the atoms, including dodecanethiols on gold and octadecyltrichlorosilanes grown on a SiO[sub 2]...
