Our Quick Mold is similar to a traditional silicon mold, but does not require a pattern transfer process. This makes the Quick Mold much easier to fabri- cate.
Rather than etching a silicon or glass substrate to form nanopatterns, the EZImprinting Quick Mold uses a thin layer of polymer nanopatterns on top of the substrate. While our polymer mold has similar mechanical and refractive index properties to the traditional silicon mold, it requires only one step to fabricate. The EZImprinting quick mold has a lifetime of over 500 imprints.
