Requiring no other modifications, this makes an ideal system for ion irradiation with fluences up to 1015 ions/cm2. Such ion energies and fluences are required in the emerging fields such as silicon micromachining using ion irradiation and we give examples of structures created with sizes as small as 200 nm. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
