Jun 01, 1999  Abstract. Focused ion beam (FIB) systems based on high-brightness gallium liquid-metal ion sources became commercially available in the late 1980s, although even today such instruments are relatively rare outside the somewhat enclosed world of semiconductor manufacturing. The use of FIB systems as precision sectioning tools down to a submicron ...
