From an interview conducted by Jake Wilkinson:

Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) is a relatively new technique that provides the ability to form nanoscale patterns at a significantly lower cost than conventional lithography methods. NIL technology is attractive to biomedical and optical device manufacturers, however, a lack of knowledge of the technique means many manufacturers have not yet taken full advantage of the technology.

We spoke to Markus Wimplinger, of the EV Group, about the new NILPhotonics™ Competence Centre that EV Group (EVG) have recently opened and how they can guide manufacturers through the entire NIL process – from prototyping to developing a high volume manufacturing plan.
