We describe a lithographic technique using atomic force microscopy (AFM) to expose commercially available photoresists in a controllable manner. In contrast to scanning tunneling microscopy lithography on photoresists, the AFM has the advantage of having better control of the contact force between the probe tip and sample and thus reduces the possibility of physical damage to the resist material during exposure. Using a metal coated cantilever, we have been able to create resist patterns at the nanometer-scale.
