Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We have developed nanoimprint technology to fabricate functional optical components. The future and usage of various molds for nanoimprint are described and their patterning examples are shown. Several applications of the nanoimprint technology are introduced; anti-reflection surface structure by using graded convex and concave patterns, extremely low threshold dye laser by 2-dimensional photonic crystals infiltrated with a gain medium, and various semiconductor nanostructures being used for functional optical devices. Nanoimprint is key technology to realize these components.
