23 February 2005 Nanoimprint lithography: full wafer replication of nanometer features
Author Affiliations +
Nanoimprint Lithography (NIL) is a fast, high resolution replication technology for micromechanics, microbiology and even for microelectronic applications in the sub-100nm range. The technique has been demonstrated to be a very promising next generation technique for large-area structure replication up to wafer-level in the micrometer and nanometer scale. For producing nanometer structures the capital investments required are much lower compared to other next generation methods (e-beam writing, x-ray lithography, EUV lithography, ...). Nanoimprint Lithography is based on two different techniques: Hot Embossing (HE) and UV-Nanoimprint Lithography (UV-NIL). Both methods can be used for replicating dense and isolated features in the range of 70nm to 100μm simultaneously on up to 200mm wafers.
