Congratulations Team Germany - You’ve etched your place in history

Inspired by the German soccer team WITec applications scientists have created a photolithography image of the World Cup. The World Cup was engraved in silicon, generated with the WITec Nanolithography package and imaged with an alpha300 Raman microscope.

On the left side the video image overlaid with the Raman Intensity is shown. The image on the right shows the Raman peak shift of the Si-line, which displays the material stress distribution.
