Directed 2D-to-3D Pattern Transfer Method for Controlled Fabrication of Topologically Complex 3D Features in Silicon



original image

A process that allows control over the 3D motion of catalyst nanostructures during metal-assisted chemical etching by their local pinning prior to etching is demonstrated. The pinning material acts as a fulcrum for rotation of the catalyst structures resulting in etching of silicon features with rotational geometry.
