The application of nanofabrication techniques in the field of electronic devices promises the development of new devices based on new physics. For example, the application of the Coulomb Blockade effect (i.e. single electron charging) at room temperature requires small particles of ~1nm in size. A specialty of the group is nanostructure fabrication by electron beam lithography in novel molecular films, e.g., based on C60. This is relevant both to the patterning of silicon at the nanoscale, where the molecules are employed as resists, and to the fabrication of molecular circuits with applications in electronics and photonics. A second program in the nanofabrication area aims to construct microstructured tips for novel scanning probe techniques, such as SPELS
