Speed control: Thermochemical nanolithography is a versatile, high-speed patterning technique capable of gray-scale chemical patterning with nanoscale resolution. Localized chemical reactions driven by a thermal cantilever enable controlled submicron variations in a diverse set of materials. Here, the technique is extended by providing a quantitative description of how the cantilever speed alters the reaction rate and controls the extent of product formation at a surface.
