Focused X-ray beam induced deposition (FXBID) is a novel technique for the additive fabrication of metallic nanostructures by illuminating metal organic precursor molecules with focused soft X-rays in a Fresnel zone plate based scanning transmission X-ray microscope (STXM)[1,2]. An advantage of the technique is the possibility to optimize precursor fragmentation by proper selection of the incident photon energy. For a better understanding of basic X-ray induced fragmentation processes, we have performed photon energy dependent mass spectrometry and secondary electron spectroscopy studies for several metal organic precursors. The results are correlated with TD-DFT calculations of the molecular orbitals relevant for soft X-ray absorption and have been transferred to advanced deposition experiments. We have started to explore the capabilities of in-situ cleaning procedures (reactive gases, annealing, etc.) to enhance the chemical purity of FXBID deposits. The project is funded by DFG grant SP 1775/1-1.
