Sept. 15, 2006 — NIL Technology, a Denmark-based provider of stamps for nanoimprint lithography and nanoimprint services, announced the launch of nanoimprint stamps with standard nanostructure down to 100 nm at a price of 1,950 Euros, or a little under $2,500.
The company said it believes the product will provide private companies and universities access to a technology which was previously reserved for the largest conglomerates.
“By making a stamp with standard structures which are ideal for test, development and education we make it possible to utilize the benefits from producing many identical stamps,” said managing director of NIL Technology, Theodor Nielsen, in a prepared statement, “and this allows us to provide stamps to the market with standard structures down to as little as 100 nm at a very low price,”
Nanoimprint lithography has been shown to produce structures smaller than 10 nm. NIL Technology specialized in the production of stamps which define the structures of the NIL process. The company says it has received orders over the last six months from countries such as the United States, South Korea, Singapore, Spain, Germany, and Denmark.
