Exploring the market for 3-D nanopatterning techniques
Date:5/20/2011

3-dimensional surfaces with features below 100 nanometres have numerous applications ranging from optics to life sciences. The development of new manufacturing processes, based on nanoimprinting techniques (NIL), is a core aspect for the success of these applications. But what are the most innovative ideas and tools needed to bring Europe to the forefront of this market? How do we bridge the gap between basic research on 3-D nanolithography and its uptake from the industry? Which are the main applications that would make this technology become a backbone for high volume production? Which steps are needed to complete the value-chain in Europe? Over 70 professionals of the field coming from both the public and private sectors recently met in Berlin to address these questions.

The opportunity came from the European R&D project "NAPANIL - Nanopatterning, Productions and Applications, based on Nanoimprinting Lithography", which held its first Industrial Day on 6 April 2011 in the heart of Berlin, Alexanderplatz, hosted by the German company micro resist technology GmbH. Among the participants, 25 representatives of the project, together with 50 participants from other institutions (26 participants from the industry and 24 participants from technical institutes), explored the potentials, limitations and expected impact of nanoimprint lithography on the market. This was achieved through a series of talks and discussions that paved the way for several collaborations oriented to the exploitation of 3-D nanoimprinting market.

Several applications of Nanoimprint Lithography were discussed, such as intelligent displays in the automotive sector, presented by Vito G. Lambertini from FIAT, or optics and optoelectronics, by C. Moorman from AMO Research in Germany and M. Tormen from the TASC Laboratory for Advanced Technologies and Nanosciences in Italy; other topics included an overview of the market on functional films provided by Nanoptics. But the pr
