CSEM strengthens relationship with Morphotonics by ordering nanoimprint equipment
By: Morphotonics B.V.
Dr. Rolando Ferrini (CSEM Sector head & Project Coordinator for PHABULOuS):
"CSEM is extremely glad to have found in Morphotonics a competent and highly dedicated partner in roll-to-plate (R2P) UV imprint on large area substrates, which substantially complement its long standing competences in wafer scale UV replication. This will enable CSEM to better respond to customer's requests in large area micro and nano UV replication. In particular, building a close collaboration between Morphotonics and CSEM, as reference Research and Technology Organization (RTO) for the large area R2P manufacturing of next generation free form micro optical components will be an asset for the recently born pilot line for the manufacturing of free form optical micro optics, PHABULOuS, funded under the H2020 framework program."
Dr. Onno Lint (CEO of Morphotonics B.V.):
"We are extremely pleased that Swiss top-technology institute CSEM buys Morphotonics' roll-to-plate technology as the new standard in large area nanoimprinting. We look forward to supporting CSEM's strong expertise in micro-optics, lacquers and applications with our piloting equipment enabling low product cost and high throughput. This opens the door and paves the way for many commercial applications not previously conceptualized or economically feasible, ranging from new display technologies, novel lighting concepts and highly efficient solar solutions to life science products".
The PHABULOuS consortium consists of 19 Companies and RTOs along the whole manufacturing value chain and has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.
CSEM, Founded in 1984, is a Swiss Research and Technology Organization (public-private partnership)
