Paper Abstract

Sidewall lithography was used as a low cost fabrication process for high aspect ratio stamps for hot embossing. The stamps, featuring up to 1 μm pattern height and an aspect ratio of about 5:1 were tested in a typical hot embossing process at 50 bar. Mechanical stability of the crystalline stamp structures was achieved after optimization of the respective dry etch process. At imprint temperatures of 140°C PMMA was imprinted over areas of four inch diameter. After residual layer removal in the trenches Al electrodes of 500 nm height and 200 nm width could be defined by evaporation and lift off.
