Below are the first 10 and last 10 pages of uncorrected machine-read text (when available) of this chapter, followed by the top 30 algorithmically extracted key phrases from the chapter as a whole.
Intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text on the opening pages of each chapter. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

Appendix A Process Activities of the Nanofab Program Table A.1 presents information on process activities in the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology’s Nanofab program, described during the FY 2009 review by the Panel on Nanoscale Science and Technology. Exclusive of the Nanofab presentation to the panel, eight processing activities were described: MEMS devices (#6, #12, #17); MEMS structure (#9); large linewidth structures >1 m (#1, #16); e-beam patterned 25 nm lines (#8); and large linewidth (~5 m) e-beam patterned electrodes (#4). The Nanofab presentation described an additional seven processing examples: five of the process examples were shown as SEMs with no technical details: MEMS device (#25) and patterned features <100 nm using e-beam lithography (#28, #29, #30, #31); two of these process examples were described in detail: FIB patterning of probe tips (#32) and e-beam patterned 100 nm gold islands (#33). 19
