EU funded project develops cost effective nanotechnology...

Finnish and French researchers working on an EU funded project have developed a nano-imprinting device for the mass production of solar cells and nano-scale bio-analysis platforms.

The nano-imprinting stepper uses a small patterned silicon chip as a stamp, the pattern of which is copied onto a polymer layer by imprinting. The polymer layer - made out of either thermoplastic or UV cured material - can then be used for replicating small sub-100 nm scale geometries onto larger areas.
