The Institute of Photonics plans to use the NLP 2000 specifically for the deposition of soft materials to existing structures to generate optical effects, color conversion and for laser fabrication.
“We are excited by our initial results using the NLP 2000 in the deposition of optical materials and polymers. The patterning of soft materials using tip-based lithography builds strongly on our existing expertise and capabilities in microLED arrays.
"As an applications-focused research unit, we believe that many exciting research opportunities will stem from this technology,” said (right) Simon Andrews, business development manager for the Institute.
“We are also very encouraged by NanoInk’s focus on supporting application development with a view towards future commercial exploitation.”
“The ability of the NLP 2000 to generate patterns of optical materials on scales wavelength or sub-wavelength dimensions is clearly aligned with strategy and capability of the Institute of Photonics,” said (left) Robert Marchmont, NanoInk GM of Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“With three of NanoInk’s DPN systems installed in close proximity, and the strong collaboration between Professors Martin Dawson (left), Peter Skabara (right) and Duncan Graham (bottom right), University of Strathclyde has developed into a key center of excellence for DPN in optical nanoscience.”
