Lithography of micro and nanostructures
X-ray lithography is commonly used to build structures with a resolution of the order of 100 nanometres. The greater penetrating power of X-rays compared to ultraviolet makes this technology particularly suited to the fabrication of complex three dimensional structures in innovative materials.

Fabrication of micro and nanodevices
Combining penetrative power of deep X-ray lithography with complementary methods of fabrication such as LIGA, it becomes possible to make lithographic incisions that can be several millimetres thick and yet exhibit detail at a submicrometric scale.
