Atomic Calligraphy Project, a New Way to Build Nanostructures
Abstract: The Atomic Calligraphy proposes the construction of a three-dimensional printing system of nanostructures using micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) devices. Such a system is based on the operating principle of a conventional thermal evaporator. The main device of this project is a MEMS comb drive driven nanopositioner that behaves as a dynamic stencil (or mobile lithography mask). The progress on this approach is presented.
