3 Dimensional Nano Imprint

More and more sub-micron-meter periodic microstructures with nano order shape accuracy and ultra-fine surface are found to have special unique properties (optical, mechanical, and thermal properties). This research concentrates on mechanical machining of the mold for 3D nano imprint of functional interface, which provides a way to discover the unique properties of microstructures experimentally. Furthermore, as a new glass molding process, an ultrasonic assisted molding, nonisothermal molding, and their combination were proposed to form complex 3D microstructures on glass surface at high efficiency.

・ Strong Collaboration among Industry, Academia and Government
We believe that greater importance will be attached to cooperation among academic institutions and between academia and government in research, with the results being put to practical use through joint projects between academia and industry. The fundamental mission of our research group is to encourage joint research in industry. In addition, we frequently provide consultation regarding technological problems in various companies.
