Paper Abstract

A VG HB5 STEM has been modified to allow computer controlled contamination writing on thin Carbon substrates. Line widths of 20 nM and height to width aspect ratios of better than 5:1 can be drawn. This writing has been used to fabricate Fresnel zone plates. A patching process is involved with registration to an accuracy of 2.5 nM. Methods and techniques have been developed to compensate for non-linearity of the field scans together with specimen drift. Zone plates of 50 NM diameter and outer zone widths of 40 nM have been con-structed.
