Osaka University Buys Nanolithography Tool
CHICAGO, April 9, 2012 — The NanoFabrication Systems Div. of NanoInk Inc. announced that Osaka University’s Photonics Advanced Research Center in Japan has purchased and installed its DPN 5000 system to fabricate nanoscale plasmonic and nanophotonic devices.
The DPN 5000 is a full-featured tip-based lithography platform capable of patterning a variety of materials with nanoscale accuracy and precision. Its intuitive user interface enables the deposition of complex nanopatterns by precisely controlling tip movements during the writing process.
The system was chosen because it is suitable for nanopatterning a variety of materials under environmentally friendly conditions, said Dr. Nobuyuki Takeyasu, an associate professor at the center.
“With the NanoInk platform’s biocompatible deposition process and rapid prototyping capabilities, Dr. Takeyasu and his colleagues will be able to quickly and easily create nanoscale plasmonic and nanophotonic devices,” said Oliver Yeh, general manager of the company’s NanoFabrication Systems Div., Asia-Pacific region. “Using the DPN 5000 system, pattern design and product fabrication are highly scalable and can be completed in less than an hour.”
NanoInk provides nanometer-scale manufacturing and applications development technologies for the life sciences, engineering, pharmaceutical and education industries.
