Challenges in NIL

During the NILaustria cluster we were faced with a lot of challenges and industrial needs in the field of Nanoimprint Lithography.

To support industry and to bring NIL forward to production PROFACTOR has started in January 2014 a project focusing on some of the main issues, which were mentioned by our partners during the cluster runtime i.e.
- NIL materials, compatibility and lifetime of working stamps and imprint materials
- replication of challenging micro and nanostructures
- cheap route from small area master to large area master
- alignment and process simulations.


Our project itself is oriented towards basic research, which however gives us the possibility to flexibly address topics from industry. Our mission is to focus on industrial needs, so we are happy if future and existing partners give input and take advantage from this project.
