Preface In assembling the material for The Physics of Microfabrication a decade ago, it became clear that the field of building ultrasmall devices was in a state of rapid change. People not only were striving to build microdevices in fields other than microelectronic circuits, such as micro-optical, micromechanical, and microchemical devices, but, perhaps more important, also were striving toward achieving atomic tolerances (less than one nanometer). At the time we felt that if we wrote a book that was restricted to the physical basis of microfabrication, it should be able to cope with evolutionary changes in microfabrication processes and thereby not date too quickly. The intervening years, however, (perhaps not unexpectedly) brought with them important revolutionary developments in methods for making and viewing ultrasmall devices, reaching well into the nanometer scale-hence the small change in the title of the present volume. Outstanding among these new technologies was the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) and variants thereof, which have effectively brought atomic resolution within our grasp, the expanded use of plasmas for micro/ nano-fabrication, and the marriag
