As the recognized global leader in power technologies, ABB is conducting research in nanotechnologies. For instance, ABB is perfecting a nano-structured sliding bearing that works in MV and HV switchgear without oil, offering lower operating costs and less environmental impact.
Eulitha AG is a spin-off company of the Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland. It specializes in the development of lithographic technologies for applications in photonics, optoelectronics, semiconductors and biotech. It manufactures and markets nano-patterned samples and templates using its own PHABLE™ tools and state-of-the-art e-beam lithography systems. PHABLE is the brand name of its proprietary photolithography platform, which includes exposure tools and wafer patterning services. The PHABLE-Technology is a breakthrough for low-cost production of sub-micron periodic structures over large-areas with a non-contact exposure system.
