Thermo Scientific NanoBuilder is a tool for the systematic planning and construction of multi-layer nano devices. This is done by dividing CAD files into ordered projects, facilitating the generation of complex structures that previously were tedious or even impossible to build. NanoBuilder Software allows for accurate patterning of large and complex nanostructures on multiple sites, supporting all DualBeam (focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy, FIB-SEM) patterning processes: FIB milling, gas-assisted FIB milling, FIB induced deposition, and electron-induced deposition.

Key Features

Fully automated

Fully automated job execution, stage navigation, milling, and deposition.

FIB and GIS

Fundamental Materials Research

Novel materials are investigated at increasingly smaller scales for maximum control of their physical and chemical properties. Electron microscopy provides researchers with key insight into a wide variety of material characteristics at the micro- to nano-scale.

 

In Situ experimentation

Direct, real-time observation of microstructural changes with electron microscopy is necessary to understand the underlying principles of dynamic processes such as recrystallization, grain growth, and phase transformation during heating, cooling, and wetting.

Nanoscale Prototyping

As technology continues to miniaturize, the demand for nanoscale devices and structures is ever increasing. 3D nanoprototyping with DualBeam instruments helps you to quickly design, create, and inspect micro- and nanoscale functional prototypes.
