University of Massachusetts Lowell Purchases Nanonex Advanced Nanoimprint Tool NX 2600
(Nanowerk News) Nanonex Corporation announces the purchase of a Nanonex NX-2600 by University of Massachusetts Lowell. Nanonex is proud to support the leading edge research at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
The NX-2600 tool was purchased by Prof. Hongwei Sun and his colleagues at University of Massachusetts at Lowell (UML). The NX-2600 will be used as a tool for nanomanufacturing and nano/micro fabrication at UML in the cutting edge research of nanostructure-based chemical and biological sensors, nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, solar cells, MEMS and template-based nanomanufacturing.
On November 5th 2009, Nanonex was invited by University of Massachusetts Lowell to introduce its low-cost, high-throughput, large-area patterning of 3D nanostructures with sub-10 nm resolution and accurate overlay alignment nanoimprint lithography (NIL) solution. The seminar introduced various forms of nanoimprinting, such as thermoplastic, ultraviolet-curable, thermal-curable, and direct imprinting (embossing). The NX imprint tool can be used to meet the needs of a broad spectrum of markets, such as optical devices, displays, data storage, biotech, semiconductor integrated circuits, chemical synthesis, and advanced materials. Nanonex also introduced its current research in laser assisted direct imprint (LADI). This technology is capable of direct “print” nanopatterns, planarizing rough surface and fill nanotrenches of hard materials through laser melting and imprinting. This project is partially supported by NIST-APT program.
