Development of nanoimprint lithography (NIL) templates is discussed. The template fabrication process and its performance are presented with consideration of the requirements of NIL for high-volume manufacturing. Defectivity, image placement, and critical dimension uniformity are the three major performance parameters of the templates, and their current status is shown.
Performances of the nanoimprint lithography templates were discussed considering the readiness toward the high volume manufacturing of nanoimprint lithography application along with the requirement for the templates and its fabrication process. The current status of the three major performances of the templates was shown.
