SwissLitho AG Appoints Nano Instruments as their Distributor in Israel

 SwissLitho, a manufacturer of 3D nano-lithography technology, termed NanoFrazor, has appointed Nano Instruments Ltd. as its exclusive distributor in Israel. The NanoFrazor is a unique tool for rapid-prototyping of nanostructures and nanodevices. It has been developed for researchers, who want to have easy and quick access to high-resolution nanometer sized geometries of almost any arbitrary kind. 3D nanopatterns can be fabricated in a single step and with unmatched precision. The closed-loop lithography (CLL) concept of this technology makes the patterning procedure extremely robust. The simultaneous inspection of the written nanostructures allows immediate quality control and feedback about the process. The `usual’ wet development step and subsequent imaging is no longer necessary. This reduces the total fabrication time dramatically compared to other nanolithography techniques. In contrast to e-beam lithography, the NanoFrazor does not need vacuum or high voltages. The processes and calibrations of the machine are fully automated, which makes the NanoFrazor very simple to use even for non-experts.

NanoFrazor“The Nano Instruments founder can look back on more than 14 years of experience in sales and support of advanced analytical and fabrication instrumentation and will be an excellent point of contact for potential customers in Israel” says Dr. ZhengMing Wu Hawellek, SwissLitho Sales Manager. “With expertise of many lithography systems sales of both e-Beam and Laser beam lithography systems and with his experience of selling AFM systems, he has the perfect background for marketing our products in Israel.”

“With Nano Instruments we now have a very dynamic and capable partner that will provide us with a well-established network in the Israeli scientific community” says Dr. Felix Holzner, SwissLitho CEO and Co-Founder. “Our common philosophies of providing high-quality, flexible and innovative products are perfectly matched. It will allow us to respond to the individual customer requirements in Israel effectively and in the long run we expect a strong market presence.”

 About SwissLitho AG

SwissLitho, which was founded in 2012, is a high-tech company with the vision to change the way nanostructures are commonly made. The company founders wish to establish the novel nanopatterning technology termed NanoFrazor, as a standard method for clean-room facilities.

The patterning principle of the NanoFrazor technology is based on thermal Scanning Probe Lithography (tSPL). The core of the technology is a sharp tip which is situated on a flexible silicon cantilever. The tip is heated by an integrated microheater. The basic idea is to use the hot probe tip to locally heat an organic resist which instantly decomposes into volatile units. The volatile units evaporate and leave a void of nanometer dimensions. By placing such voids, adjacent one to another, arbitrary shapes can be carved out from the resist.

3D Nanopatterning is achieved by the actuation mechanism of the cantilevers which enables an extremely precise control over the vertical movement of the tip. At the same time, the evaporation process of the resist is extremely fast and efficient.

The NanoFrazor is a Novel and unique tool for rapid-lithography of 3D nanostructures and nanodevices.

The company team has an international and interdisciplinary scientific background with physicists, material, software and electrical engineers from 8 different countries.
