A micropillar is provided with lateral contacts in order to generate an in-plane electrical field inside the cavity. The contacts are formed by focused ion beam induced deposition of platinum between a gold layer and the micropillar. The image was colorized (Pt: blue, Au: yellow, micropillar: red).

Silver clusters deposited by thermal evaporation onto self-assembled polystyrene nano-spheres (900 nm). Inspect F SEM FEG @ Nanofacility Piemonte INRIM. Self-assembled polystyrene nanospheres are used as masks for thin films and materials nanostructuration on large area. Maybe the subject doesn't match the topics of this year, but surely the title fits.

The sample is zircon (ZrSiO4) doped with iron Fe at 0.05 wt%. This compound was prepared by control hydrolitic sol-gel route. The sample was heated at 1200oC during 3 h in air. This compound has application as a ceramic pigment.

Sub-micrometer grains of a Ti-rich sulfide phase were discovered in the Yamato 691 meteorite. The FIB was used at NASA-JSC Labs. to extract a thin x-section of the grains. Subsequent TEM analyses verified the composition and crystal structure of the phase and and a new mineral was discovered. In the picrure, the sub-micron grain of the new mineral is shown in yellow color.
