Norsam Technologies provides services at the microscale. Our staff is highly skilled in the art of creating microscopic features in diamond, molybdenum, platinum and other materials. For example, the piece at the right was sculpted from a particle of diamond dust using focused ion beam (FIB) technology.
Diamond Probes and Tools
Norsam fabricates diamond probes and tools used for hardness testing, metrology, imaging and other purposes. The size of the features we create ranges from submicron scale to a few microns in length.
Apertures and Penetrations
Focused ion beam (FIB) processes are most effective for creating apertures in thin metals and ceramics at diameters of 10 microns to less than 500 nanometers.
Inscriptions and Artifacts
Almost any graphic can be micro-milled into various substrates such as fiber optics for the fabrication of calibration standards.
NanoRosetta and Related Processes
Thousands of pages of text across only a few square centimeters in nickel, silicon, plastic and even gold. There is tremendous potential for jewelry and other applications.
