A method of forming patterned nanometer scale rings by studying their composition by nanometer resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) and electron diffraction was discussed. The method was based on rearrangement of the bonding in silicate glasses induced by high-energy electron excitation. Scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) lithography was used to make structures other than rings, such as holes, rods and dots.
