Who is Fabian Pease?

R. Fabian W. Pease served as a radar officer in the Royal Air Force from 1955 to 1957, and received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from Cambridge University in 1960, 1962, and 1964, respectively. His Ph.D. thesis was on High Resolution Scanning Electron Microscopy. After graduating, he was an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at UC Berkeley for three years, where he continued his microscopy research. In 1967, Dr. Pease joined the technical staff of Bell Laboratories, where he first worked on digital television and later led a group that developed the processes for electron beam lithographic mask manufacture, and demonstrated a pioneering LSI circuit built with electron beam lithography.

Since 1978 he has been a Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. His group's areas of research include micro- and nano-fabrication and their application to electronic and magnetic devices and structures. This work has included the original demonstration of lithography with the scanning tunneling microscope, exploring the limits of resolution of deep ultraviolet lithography, the invention of the micro-channel heat sink and non-conventional electron beam technology for semiconductor manufacturing.
