Electrochemical Microstructuring



We use ultrashort potential pulses with durations of typically 1 to 50 ns between a tool electrode and a workpiece to confine electrochemical reactions, e.g.electrochemical metal dissolution with submicrometer precision. This allows machining of metal surfaces similar to a conventional milling machine, however, on micrometer scale.
