The purpose of this workshop is to establish a deeper understanding of the proximity effect (PE) in electron beam lithography.

The physical background of the effect is explained briefly, as well as methods to avoid the influence of the [PE]. Another focus is the usage of Raith software package for proximity effect correction.
