Abstract

High resolution pattern transfers in the nano-scale regime have been considerable challenges in ‘soft lithography’ to achieve nanodevices with enhanced performances. In this technology, the resolution of pattern integrations is significantly rely on the materials' properties of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) stamps. Since commercial PDMS stamps have shown limitations in nano-scale resolution soft lithography due to their low physical toughness and high thermal expansion coefficients, we developed stiffer, photocured PDMS silicon elastomers designed, specifically for nano-sized soft lithography and photopatternable nanofabrications.
