ANZAC Day image fabricated by Focused Ion Beam

The ANZAC pattern was fabricated by using Focused Ion Bean (FIB) system at the Australian National Fabrication Facility by Dr Evgeny Mironov a recently graduated visiting PhD student from ADFA, to commemorate the 100 years of ANZAC (1915-2015) 

The structure was milled by accelerated gallium ions, which bombarded a 300 nanometer thick golden film deposited on top of the quartz substragte.  The pattern was created by vectoring the original image into 900 individual elements and uploading their coordinates to the specially designed patterning script.  The structure has the dimensions of 375 by 375 micrometers with the smallest features of on 1 micrometer in size.
