    A 50-keV focused Ga+ beam was used to expose dots in a negative-acting bilevel resist structure in an exposure range between 1 μs/pixel and 4 s/pixel. The radii of the resist dots were used to determine the current-density profiles of the Ga+ ion microprobe down to six orders of magnitude...

    Ion Beam Induced Luminescence (IBIL) and Ion Beam Induced Charge Collection (IBICC) have been used to study the efficiency and the homogeneity of the luminescence emission in phosphors. The IBIL imaging was made by using sharply focused ion beams or broad/partially-focused ion beams. Samples...

    The article discusses the use of three-dimensional (3D) ion beam lithography (IBL) approach in fabricating 3D photonic crystals (PC) slanted-pore (SP) structure with photonic bandgap (PBG). It says that the fabrication technique has employed direct-patterning approach by gallium (Ga) ions to...

    A nano-sized ion beam apparatus has been used as maskless lithography to implant 20 keV Ga+ ions into a 26 nm thick silicon crystalline film on insulator. The ion beam, with about 5 nm standard deviation, delivered few hundred ions during a single shot. Circular areas with nominal diameter of 20...

    We utilize a focused beam of Ga+ ions to define magnetization pinning sites in a ferromagnetic epilayer of (Ga,Mn)As. The nonmagnetic defects locally increase the magnetocrystalline anisotropy energies, by which a domain wall is pinned at a given position. We demonstrate techniques for...

    The optical properties of InGaN/GaN quantum wells, which were nanopatterned into cylindrical shapes with diameters of 2 μm, 1 μm, or 500 nm by chemically assisted ion beam etching, were investigated. Photoluminescence (PL) and time-resolved PL measurements suggest inhomogeneous relaxation...

    In recent years, a single ion hit facility has been constructed at the IFJ ion microprobe. The setup is used for the precise irradiations of living cells by a controlled number of ions. Investigations of such type have two very important requirements: (1) cells must be examined in their natural...
