Nanoimprinting by Melt Processing: An Easy Technique to Fabricate Versatile Nanostructures



original image

Insights gained from rheological and contact angle measurements of plasticized and non-plasticized polymers have led to the development of a simple method to print densely packed micro- and nanoscale features without proximity effects. Versatile large-area nanopatterns and landscapes with a high degree of fidelity are successfully imprinted. This technique promises a variety of polymer nanostructures to a wide spectrum of scientific fields.
