The areas of applications and fields that use Raith systems could hardly be more diverse; from fundamental research in nanophysics and nanomedicine, optoelectronics and material science to quantum technology, the possibilities are endless. Here are a few examples to give you an idea of what our customers are achieving with Raith system technology.
The first astrophysical detection of the helium hydride ion hit the news in April, immediately generating massive interest. The ion was the first molecule that formed after the Big Bang but could never before be detected in interstellar medium. With GREAT’s (German REceiver for Astronomy at Terahertz frequencies) far-infrared spectrometer onboard the flying observatory SOFIA (Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy) detection was now made possible, offering a glance at the history of the early Universe. A central part of the receiver was fabricated with the help of a Raith PIONEER Two system: The NbN Hot-Electron-Bolometers used to down-convert the incoming THz signals to amplifiable GHz frequencies were designed and patterned at the microfabrication laboratory of University of Cologne’s I. Physikalisches Institut.

Congratulations to our customer Prof. Andrei Faraon from Caltech for his achievements in MEMS-integrated metasurfaces!
Our new application note by A. Han et al. from DTU (Technical University of Denmark) explains the advantages of negative-tone direct-write Organic Ice Resist processes which eliminate the solvent development and drying required for EBL, thus allowing for further sample processing either in situ or ex situ.
Congratulation to our customers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) who received the Gips-Schüle Research Award for the World’s Smallest Photodetector!
Sascha Mühlbrandt, Christian Koos, and Manfred Kohl of KIT’s Institute of Microtechnology/Institute of Photonics and Quantum Electronics were honored for their work on plasmonic photodetectors which combine an ultra-compact footprint with electro-optical bandwidths of hundreds of GHz.
More detailed information can be found in the paper "Silicon-plasmonic internal-photoemission detector for 40 Gbit/s data reception" which was published in Optica: https://doi.org/10.1364/OPTICA.3.000741
With the EBPG5200 at IMT the record-breaking ultracompact devices can be fabricated within a week. Nowadays their architecture can even be expanded from three to four layers which is only possible due to the high overlay accuracy of the patterning system. We are excited for our customers and eager to see where the research will lead in the future.

The easiest nanolithography software user interface now available
Raith's new Multi Sample exposure package simplifies and consolidates exposures of multiple samples from different users and user levels in a single run. It offers easy access to nanolithography for users with or without experience in electron beam lithography and is a big step towards a nano-printer.
ionLiNE Plus proofs unique capabilities
A research group headed by Prof. Weibo Gao at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, in cooperation with the Raith application team, has recently shown that ion implantation with a focused Si++ ion beam can be employed for creating active silicon vacancies in SiC.
