Making Patterned Metal Surfaces with Metal Lift-Off Techniques

Patterned thin films have had an enormous impact on modern technology, and though semiconducting elements typically grab the spotlight, metal surfaces have played a crucial role in various advanced applications such as materials characterization, biosensors, chemical sensors and microelectro-mechanical systems (MEMS).

Patterning Metal Surfaces Using Shadow Masks

Surface patterning describes fabrication methods which modify substrates with extreme precision. The need for detailed surface structures is becoming increasingly common for scientists across a range of disciplines and there are many means with which these surface patterns can be created. In this blog, we discuss surface patterning with shadow masks, an important tool for fabricating thin film components for microelectronics in a rapid and repeatable manner.

Thanks to @JimZhong86 and Hyunsuk Shim for helping publish this paper.

Whole brain MR spectroscopy in low-to-intermediate grade glioma patients was predictive of areas of subsequent recurrence. Hopefully this can help us improve treatment planning.
