Abstract:
- Dr. Jim Wang at NanoOpto Corporation -

Winner of Obducat Prize

SWEDEN | Posted on June 5th, 2007

The winner of Obducat Prize 2006 is Dr. Jim Wang and his fellow colleagues at NanoOpto Corporation due to shown innovation quality in combination with a large commercial potential and a high level of scientific content. The R&D Group consists of:

Jian Jim Wang, Xuegong Deng, Xiaoming Liu, Anguel Nikolov, Paul Sciortino, Feng Liu, and Lei Chen

In their application they showed the realization of multilayer NIL-technology using patterning of nanogratings employing nanoimprint in combination with atomic layer deposition-based filling and subsequent alignment and stacking of such gratings on top of each other. They showed that the grating periods gave rise to certain optical properties that enabled components such as e.g Blu-ray emitters to be fabricated. These components have a large market potential for realization in e.g. optical disc technology as well as for optical communication. The expected time-to-market is anticipated to materialize in the near future.

"Runner-up" in Obducat Prize

Mr. D. M. Nanditha. M. Dissanayake, Dr A. A. Damitha T. Adikaari, Dr Richard J. Curry, Dr Ross A. Hatton and Prof. S. Ravi P. Silva at the Nano-Electronics Centre at the University of Surrey, UK

"Runner-up" in Obducat Prize 2006 is the Nano-Electronics centre at the University of Surrey, UK due to a high level of innovation in combination with a possibly large commercial potential in the developed devices.

The application concerned structuring of bilayers including small-molecule organic polymers using nanoimprint lithography. As a result of the patterning, functional components were realized suitable as large area high-quality organic photo-voltaic components for e.g. light harvesting applications. There is a high scientific level in the background work and it is judged as having a high generic quality and value which could generate a commercial potential in the future.

The Obducat Prize Award Selection Committee consisted of Prof Lars Montelius from Lund University, Department of Physics & The Nanometer Structure Consortium & Obducat Board member, Henri Bergstrand, Chairman of the Obducat Board and Patrik Lundström, CEO of Obducat.

First prize: Cash € 4000 + Award Diploma

Second prize: Cash € 1000 + Award Diploma
