In earlier work, an electronic microarray device was used to carry out a bottom-up approach for the directed self-assembly of higher order 3D structures from biotin/streptavidin, DNA and enzyme derivatized nanoparticles. Structures with up to [...]
In nanofabrication and nanoanalysis, focused ion beam – scanning electron microscope (FIB-SEM) systems are increasingly used for demanding patterning tasks which rely on precise pattern placement and/or dimension control. Easily verifying and correcting for patterning [...]
In this paper, a UV fs fiber laser was used for direct writing nanofabrication on different materials. The laser used is a commercialized mode-locked fiber laser (PolarOnyx Uranus Series), generating typically Gaussian shape pulses (750 [...]
A demonstration of a pinched flow fractionation device that enables pressure controlled tuning of the separation range of particles. This makes the device ready for easy and cheap mass-production, maintaining great flexibility, and rendering the [...]
A novel, practical fluidic method is presented for coating ultra-thin, ultra-uniform layers and realizing self-assembled monolayers of particles, into nanoscale in atmosphere and room temperature at rates scalable to web processes at >4 m/min. A [...]

Micro- and nanofluidic systems fabricated in silicon and glass substrates are expensive and have long production cycles. To minimize the time used by researchers to fabricate their systems, rather than using them, medium to high [...]
One-dimensional nanomaterials have attracted a great deal of research interest in the past few decades due to their unique mechanical, electrical and optical properties. Changing the shape of nanowires (NWs) is both challenging and crucial [...]

The inherent difficulties in handling and producing graphene have been a major barrier in developing such devices. Conventional microfabrication methods are mostly based on chemical etching processes, which often involve tedious masking and aligning steps. [...]
The manufacture of nano-electronic devices, nano manipulators, and microelectromechanical sensors, as well as elaborations of nano-technological processes with atomic spatial resolution have made it necessary to calibrate measuring devices at the nanoscale with sub-nanometric error. [...]
The one of the most promising method for the producing of silicon-based NPs is the laser ablation of solid target in liquid (LAL), because it’s relatively simple, fast and “green”. In this work we produced [...]
This paper proposes a low cost but rapid methodology for fabricating working stamps with tunable line-width or pitch structures. Conventionally, the master stamp for nanoimprint lithograph (NIL) is made of silicon by e-beam lithography, which [...]
We present a new facile method for vertical growth of the silicon nanowire (Si NW) that obviates the need for SiCl4 in vapor-liquid-solid (VLS) process. The VLS process that involves SiCl4 has two major disadvantages; [...]
The NIL process can be divided into two steps: the pressing and demolding stages. In the pressing stage, micro/nano scale patterns on a mold are transferred to a polymer resist. During this stage, there are [...]
A new cyclic forward-backward extrusion (CFBE) process was introduced as a severe plastic deformation (SPD) technique to produce ultrafine-grained aluminum rods. According to transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) results, the average [...]
This paper demonstrates a scalable and fast-shaping top-down integration technique, Laser Dynamic Forming (LDF), capable of manufacturing 3D functional structures conformal to micro-to-mesoscale curvilinear features on various substrates by the laser-induced shockwave. The functional devices [...]
