The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The present invention relates to nano-structures capable of molecular scale operations. In particular it relates to structures containing small openings, or nanopores."
In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "A layer is produced including a first spacer that penetrates through the layer. A subsequent layer over, and in direct contact with, the layer is also produced. The subsequent layer includes a second spacer penetrating through the subsequent layer. The first spacer and the second spacer are selectively etched away, creating a first slit and a second slit. Respective projections of these slits are crossing one another at an angle. At such a crossing an opening is formed which provides for fluid connectivity through the two layers.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE DRAWINGS
"These and other features of the present invention will become apparent from the accompanying detailed description and drawings, wherein:
"FIGS. 1A, 1B show schematic cross sectional views of a crossed slit structure according to an embodiment of the disclosure;
"FIGS. 2A, 2B show schematic top views of a crossed slit structure according to an embodiment of the disclosure;
"FIGS. 3A-3G show cross sectional views of a sequence of selected processing steps in the fabrication of a crossed slit structure according to an embodiment of the disclosure; and
"FIGS. 4A-4C schematically depict top views a structure with a plurality of slits and multiple openings according to an embodiment of the disclosure."
