Current Research

My focus is on UV-curable nanoimprint lithography and the applications of this fabrication technology. I have worked on the development of a device that possesses the ability to perform nanoimprinting on a 1"x1" substrate, as well as integrate with an optical aligner for alignment functionality. This technology provides a means to create high-resolution (less than 100 nm), multi-layered patterns with relatively high throughput and low expense. I intend to seek out new and interesting applications of nanoimprint lithography, as well as explore possible solutions to alleviate its current limitations.
