The nano-electron beam assisted fabrication of atomically sharp iron-based tips (see figure) and the creation of a nano-soldering iron for nano-interconnects using Fe-filled multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) is reported. The technique allows carving of a MWCNT and a control of the flow of the encapsulated metal outward by regulating the e-beam exposure time and spot size.
