Helmut Schift is head of the Polymer Nanotechnology Group in the Laboratory for Micro- and Nanotechnology at the Paul Scherrer Institut. He received his diploma in Electrical Engineering from the University of Karlsruhe, and performed his PhD studies at the Institute of Microtechnology Mainz. After his graduation in 1994, he joined PSI as a research staff member. His current research interests include innovative 3-D stamp fabrication and nanomolding processes, including roll embossing and injection molding.
Benchmarking surface selective vacuum ultraviolet and thermal postprocessing of thermoplastics for ultrasmooth 3-D-printed micro-optics
Depth-profiling of vertical material contrast after VUV exposure for contact-free polishing of 3D polymer micro-optics
How post-processing by selective thermal reflow can reduce the roughness of 3D lithography in micro-optical lenses
mr-PosEBR: a novel positive tone resist for high resolution electron beam lithography and 3D surface patterning
Replicated diffractive optical lens components for laser-diode to fiber coupling in optical bench arrangements
Achieving mass fabrication of microoptical systems by combining deep-x-ray lithography, electroforming, micromolding, and embossing
