Title: Fabricating Nanostructures Using Optical Forces on Atoms
Published: January 01, 1994
Abstract: We have demonstrated the use of the optical dipole force in a standing wave to focus chromium atoms into narrow lines as they deposit onto a silicon substrate. An array of chromium lines has been fabricated, with width of 65 nm and spacing of 213 nm.
