Rapid fabrication of nanoneedle arrays by ion sputtering.
We report a novel method for rapidly fabricating ordered nanoneedles using an ion beam that cuts through the Fe/GaAs single thin layer or the Fe/MgO/Fe/GaAs multilayer producing a pillar pattern followed by raster-scanning normal to the patterned area. However, such ordered nanoneedles were not formed on the pure GaAs substrate surface without the thin Fe film coating, nor were nanoneedles formed on the GaAs substrate coated with a thin Cr epitaxial film, when this method was used. It has adv...Expand abstract
