The NIL Technology CNI-PV 2.1 Nano Imprint Lithography System is a lithography tool that is used to enable nanoscale printing by thermal or UV exposure of photoresist with an imprint stamp. Vacuum in the imprint chamber is enabled down to 1 micron, and thermal imprint of up to 240°C is available. The system is compatible with UV-cured resists, and has an integral UV light source for those processes. It allows up to 200 mm diameter substrates with UV, or up to 150x150 mm substrates with thermal processing.
