A fabrication technique combining electron-beam-induced deposition and low energy ion milling is suggested. Nanosized deposits fabricated by electron-beam-induced deposition are used as masks for low energy ion milling so that the substrate regions covered with the nano-sized deposits form nanostructures. A check by high-resolution electron microscopy showed that the method can be used to fabricate nanometer-sized structures from various materials with high crystallinity which is very important for device applications.
