Abstract

High resolution microlithography is essential to the fabrication of precision ink jet aperture plates. The longest dimension over which these processes are conven-tionally available is currently four inches. This dimension is closely tied to the largest size of silicon wafers that can be economically grown. For the extended arrays, other methods must be considered.
