9/9/2013  The UIMF took delivery of a state-of-the-art NanoImprint tool, Nanonex 2000 - this tool is a full wafer nanoimprintor that offers all forms of imprint: thermal, photocurable and embossing. It offers excellent uniformity over the entire substrate with high throughput and sub 10 nm resolution. The applications of this tool include, nanophotonics, displays, data storage, advanced materials, biotechnology and nanofluidics. This tool was purchased through an external grant awarded to Prof. McEntaffer to develop X-ray focusing elements for satellites. The installation of this tool is underway.
