Deep X-ray lithography combined with sol-gel techniques offers facile fabrication of controlled patterned films. Using sol-gel, different functional properties can be induced; deep X-ray lithography alters the functionality in the exposed regions. Miniaturized devices based on local property changes are easily fabricated: this technique requires no resist, enabling direct patterning of films in a one-step lithographic process.
