The major interest in Focused Ion Beam (FIB) has been driven by the potential of the process to enable the fabrication of precision engineering parts, high resolution patterns and micro-moulds required in applications such as the manufacturing of miniaturised components for various heterogeneous systems, micro-fluidics, bio-medical, MEMS, and embedded electronic test devices. A major issue with realising the milling capability of FIB is associated with the ability to accurately control the depth variation. A computational model that predicts the milling depth as function of the ion beam scanning frequency and a number of process parameters is investigated and experimentally validated. The model can assist in specifying optimal FIB process parameters for achieving accurate shapes of the intended micro- or nano-features.
