Step and Repeat J-FIL™

- CMOS Memory

- 300 and 450 mm lithography

- 6025 Mask replication

- 1x nm patterning without double patterning steps

Roll-based J-FIL™

- Flexible film patterning

- Flat panel display patterning

- Wire grid polarizer

Full substrate J-FIL™

- Hard disk drive patterned media

- LED photonic crystal patterning

- Patterned Sapphire Substrates for HB-LEDs

- 2"-4" wafer lithography

- Imprint Mask replication using master wafers

Molecular Imprints' Core Technology

Dotted Line

ImageJet and Flash™ Imprint Lithography (J-FIL™), unlike common imprint technologies that rely on heat embossing to melt thermoplastic solids, transfers nanopatterns into a proprietary water-like photopolymer which conforms almost instantaneously to a mask (a.k.a., template) due to capillary forces. J-FIL uses proprietary inkjet technology and Molecular Imprints IntelliJet™ Drop Pattern Generator system to deposit picoliter sized drops according to the customers mask/template pattern. This insures a consistent and uniform pattern etch even below 20nm.
