Abstract

This work demonstrates the successful application of the precision cross-sectioning technique to the characterization of two types of Si-based nanostructures. Careful wedge-polishing of an array of metal-coated poly-Si microlines gave electron transparency over areas as broad as 1.5 mm across. A single, specific, SET (Single Electron Transistor), having dimensions of 4×4 μm 2, was cross-sectioned for examination using conventional and high-resolution TEM imaging.
