Paper Abstract

Lithographical patterning on the surface of a fine pipe with a thin wall is required for fabricating three-dimensional micro-parts. For this reason, a new exposure system for printing patterns on a cylindrical pipe by synchronous rotary scan-projection exposure was developed. Using the exposure system, stent-like resist patterns with a width of 251 μm were printed on a surface of stainless-steel pipe with an outer diameter of 2 mm. The exposure time was 30 s. Next, the patterned pipe was chemically etched. As a result, a stent-like mesh pipe with a line width of 230 μm was fabricated. It was demonstrated that the new method had a potential to be applied to fabrications of stent and other cylindrical micro-parts.
