Focused Ion Beam technology and FIB/SEM instrumentation have become commonplace in industrial and academic analytical laboratories. While basic push-button operation of modern computerized FIB instruments is straight-forward, final results are still heavily dependent on qualification of the operator and thorough planning based on understanding of underlying physical phenomena. We will review underlying principles of Focused Ion Beam technology from the perspective of end-user, discuss analytical and patterning possibilities offered by modern instrumentation, and outline limitations inherent to Focused Ion Beam technology.
