Paper Abstract

While researchers of ever more advanced NGL systems are still struggling to demonstrate the feasibility to manufacture features well below 100 nm at an affordable cost and a reasonable throughput, nanoimprint technologies are emerging as a possible answer to these challenges. 100 nm patterns are imprinted with a fully patterned 4 inch diameter stamp in a low-temperature embossing process. In low temperature imprinting processes with polymers having very low glass transition temperatures heating and cooling cycles are minimized. This enables to increase the throughput of a hot embossing process, which is important for potential industrial applications.
