Hi! I use Transene Chromium Etchants 1020 to etch Cr. My Cr layer is
thermally evaporated and is 5-7 nm thick to avoid electrical charging in
doing e-beam lithography.
Sample with Cr layer is etched for 30 seconds in the etchant and then I
rinse it with DI water.
You can check the information from the link below.
