The nanoimprint technology is attractive for the fabrication of nano-scale structures in view of cost and mass production. There are several points for the industrial applications such as pattern formation area, resolution, residual layer thickness, precise control of pattern transfer, lifetime of mold, alignment and so on. A thermal nanoimprint system, which can imprint fine dots on a 300 mm diameter wafer in a single step, is developed. The narrow pith patterns for future storage and IT devices are formed on a polymer layer. A high-aspect nanoprint (Hi-NP) technology forms polymer nanopillars with high aspect ratio. The nanopillars are applied to a bio-chip for the fluorescence immunoassay. The chip is effective in the enhancement of the fluorescence intensities, since the nanopillars enlarge the surface area.
