The reliable fabrication of nanostructures is polymer materials, i.e. structures with feature sizes below 100 nm, is an important goal if progress in the application of such materials in electronic, magnetic, and optical devices is to be maintained. Replica molding has been used extensively to produce micrometer sized features. Here, the technique is extended to the nanometer regime such as that shown in the figure. fig.
