Keywords: helium ion microscopy, sub-nanometer image resolution, graphene, soft materials collagen fibers

The helium ion microscope routinely obtains sub-nanometer resolution on uncoated soft materials with a high signal to damage ratio. In addition to its high resolution imaging capability, the microscope has been successful at sub-nanometer film thickness determination, the patterning of 5 nm free standing graphene wires and the ion induced deposition of a 30nm, 6 micron high, free standing tungsten pillar. We will discuss the microscope and these various recent applications.
