SCIL Nanoimprint’s technological possibilities

Building patterns and structures at the nanoscale allows to control and manipulate the light travel on materials to perform different kinds of devices in fields such as optics, electronics, biotechnology, and energy. Thus makes nanopatterning a key process step for a multitude of nanophotonic applications. The applications mentioned above are just some examples of SCIL Nanoimprint’s technological possibilities.

Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality

Nowadays, creating interactive experiences in the real world is attracting more attention nowadays. Employing SCIL, AR devices can be manufactured highly reproducible without plastic deformation. 



The conformal imprinting, high-resolution patterning, and the possibility of using complex patterns in addition to a wide range of materials make SCIL technology optimal for building metalenses.



The possibility of manufacturing gratings with sub-wavelength pitch avoids diffraction losses in the laser cavity, increasing its efficiency.
