Low-cost optical components through nanoimprinting lithography
Date:4/20/2012

The development of new applications based on nanoimprinting techniques (NIL) is evolving at a rapid pace. But what are the challenges to be overcome in order to reach the market? How do we bridge the gap between basic research and its uptake from the industry? What are the tools needed for each product?

The European project NAPANIL deals exactly with this topic, i.e. Nanopatterning, Production and Applications based on Nanoimprinting Lithography. The project, now reaching its end, presented its final results over the last few days at Photonics Europe. The event took place in Brussels from 16 to 18 April and it involved more than 2500 participants from all over the world.

NAPANIL representation at Photonics Europe followed up on the success of the two NAPANIL industrial days, held respectively in April 2011 and February 2012. Over 2.500 persons attended the world renown event on Photonics, which involved both technical presentations and exhibitions from commercial professionals operating in the most varied fields of photonic sciences.

NAPANIL engaged on two main actions: first, a special session on NIL for Photonics was selected as a Hot Topic of the Micro-Optics conference series. Several applications of Nanoimprint Lithography were presented here, such as NIL for Pattern Definition, presented by Hella Scheer, professor of Electron Technology, Information and Media Technology at the University of Wuppertal; NIL for Electronic Products, by Philips Research representative Marc Verschuuren; Intelligent Displays for cars, presented by Vito Lambertini from FIAT Research Centre; UV-based NIL for Negative Index Materials, as done at Austrian Profactor GmbH and explained by Iris Bergmair; Metallic Colour Filtering, as presented by Stefan Landis from CEA-LETI; Functional Light Directional Elements, as done at Saint-Gobain Recherche, Swellable Hydrogels for Optical Sensor Structures, jointly performed by the Catalan Institute of Nanotechno
