Definition of lithography in English:
- Printing on aluminum foil can be accomplished by any commercial process, including rotogravure, flexography, lithography, and letterpress.
- Over 10,000 means that we could switch from letter press to offset lithography, a process which depends on the immiscibility of greasy ink and water on a lithographic plate.
- In offset lithography, a printing process commonly used for mass production, the image is taken from the plate by a rubber roller that then transfers the image to the paper.
- In microelectronics manufacturing, lithography plays the analogous role.
- For example, polymer nanoimprint lithography could help the electronics industry achieve the resolution requirements needed for next-generation devices.
- Electron beam lithography involves striking a surface with a beam of electrons with patterning capabilities below 100 nm.
The earliest forms of lithography used greasy ink to form an image on a piece of limestone which was then etched with acid and treated with gum arabic. In a modern press, rollers transfer ink to a thin aluminium plate wrapped round a cylinder. In offset lithography the image is transferred to an intermediate rubber-covered cylinder before being printed
