As devices become progressively smaller, nanofabrication is increasingly essential for the realization of nanotechnologies that require such structures. Emerging Lithographic Technologies for Nanopatterning reviews conventional and non-conventional technologies for fabricating semiconductor circuits, particularly on microchips. Emphasizing multidisciplinary principles, methodologies, and practical applications, coverage includes emerging techniques for next-generation semiconductor lithography, scanning probe microscope lithography, self-assembly, imprint lithography, and techniques specifically developed for making nanoscale particles, wires, and tubes as well as molecular circuits and devices.
