Nanonex NX-2500 Nanoimprint Lithography Update (Cornell)

Posted Oct. 2012

Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) has the advantage of high throughput with sub-10nm resolution.  NIL is included on the ITRS roadmap for 45nm and below nodes for advanced electronic devices.  In addition to electronics, NIL is a benefit to many applications including displays, nanophotonics, biotechnology, and MEMS.

Nature or Nurture: Where do we get our ability to think about research implications?

At CNF, we start each Societal and Ethical Issues training with an introduction slide.  Believe it or not, by the time the users see me at 3:15pm they STILL haven’t introduced themselves to each other.  We ask the users to do three things: 1.) say your name, 2.) provide your institutional background, and 3.) explain your research as if you were explaining it to your non-engineering grandmother.  The point is can you explain what you do in a way that anyone can understand?

High aspect ratio etching of sub 100 nm structures in dielectrics
