Welcome to SwissLitho AG


SwissLitho is a young high-tech company with the vision to change the way nanostructures are commonly made. Our unique nanolithography tools, called NanoFrazor, trace their origins to the Millipede project from IBM Research Zurich. The multiple-patented technology uses heatable silicon tips for patterning and simultaneous imaging of arbitrary high-resolution nanostructures. The NanoFrazor opens up new and unprecedented possibilities for nanofabrication in order to accelerate scientific and technological progress in all fields of nanotechnology. Since its foundation in 2012, SwissLitho has received many of the most prestigious national and international start-up and technology awards. We are a multi-national and interdisciplinary team of engineers and scientists from more than 10 countries and with customers from all over the world.
