Nano-convergence Manufacturing Research Division

The Nano-convergence Manufacturing Research Division develops nano-convergence technology for future production by developing core technologies and conducting commercialization research.

Nano-lithography & Manufacturing Research Center

Research Topics

  • Nano-imprint lithography processes and equipment
  • High-resolution digital lithography processes and equipment
  • Ultra-precision machining and molding process and device fabrication

Major Achievements

Nano-imprint lithography equipment and world-first nano-scale embedded artificial lens

Offers a cost-effective alternative to traditional optical and electron-beam lithography for creating nano-scale structures on various substrates. This technology utilizes pre-fabricated stamps engraved with nano-patterns to precisely fabricate nano-scale structures directly onto various surfaces, including silicon wafers, glass, and plastic, and is suitable for high-resolution pattern formation and mass production. Nano-imprint lithography plays a crucial role in manufacturing high-performance semiconductor chips, developing nano-scale medical diagnostic devices, and producing high-resolution displays, providing significant cost and time savings over older technologies.
