France has a strong academic tradition and is committed to investing in research and education. Here's what French academics make.
Materials and applications
NanoImprint Lithography, based on the use of a nanopatterned stamp, has been developed to 2D or advantageously 3D (discrete or analog) patterns within polymer layer. One of the essential steps of this technology is the design and manufacturing of the master designed to code the information to be printed. When the surfaces to be printed become equivalent to the size of a standard microelectronic silicon wafer (300 mm in diameter) and the dimensions of the patterns are lower than 100 nm, the manufacturing of such masters remains a real challenge to date. As part of this thesis we propose to implement an innovative solution for manufacturing this type of masters. A first trial of the solution proposed by the laboratory (not requiring expensive lithography tools) has demonstrated the feasibility of this approach. The aim of the thesis will be to optimize this new technique while focusing on identifying the limits of this approach.
