Precision patterned optical films are key components of today's display technologies, serving as brightness enhancement films, diffuser films and patterned light guides, to name a few. In recent years, much attention has been given to methodologies for patterning optical films with nanoscale precision at the scale and economics required by the Flat Panel Display industry. With this work, we report a platform technology, Pattern Replication In Non-Wetting Templates (PRINT®), for polymer-tool based manufacturing of patterned optical films for the display industry. By using Fluorocur® mold materials, the PRINT® (Pattern Replication In Nonwetting Template) technology enables low cost manufacturing of precise micro and nanoscale features with single nanometer precision from virtually any material.
