The newly launched range includes the miDALIX DaLI, which eliminates the need for a photomask. The technology is ideal for innovative laboratories and research facilities across the US, including universities.


It offers fast product development without the time or cost of waiting for externally produced photolithography masks. When used properly, the system increases the operational efficiency of any professional lab. More details about the technology are available at https://midalix.com/technology


This result is achieved because prototyping times are shortened, the design transfer to substrate process is simplified, and there is a level of flexibility that can only be achieved in-house. In addition, users have complete control over their designs through the CAD library that is provided.


Whether researchers want to develop a new design or amend a partial or fully designed pattern – they can do it all on a standalone PC without the DaLI system being connected. The system has already achieved results in nanotechnology and non-volatile memory devices.


DaLI was used for a project with several research institutions as a state-of-the-art approach and precise alignment was required. As part of the remit, electrodes needed to be layered on top of multiple crystal flakes.


Flexibility was important, as there were geometric and size differences between each crystal to consider. A spin-coating technique was used to apply a photoresist on the crystal flakes placed on sapphire substrates, which were then inserted into the device and processed by DaLI.


The research was published in Nature Communications and highlighted the broad range of uses for DaLI, which includes applications in material science, quantum devices, microelectronics, and microfluidics.


A client from the Laboratory of Organic Matter Physics, University of Nova Gorica, wrote: “The DaLI is a device that allows us to accurately fabricate metal electrodes on nanostructures, which is crucial for the course of our research. We use the device daily and appreciate its accuracy, compactness, and user-friendly interface.”
