NON-PLANAR DIRECT-WRITE NANOLITHOGRAPHY

Available electrospinning technologies deposit haphazard fiber patterns. This deposition process significantly limits the pattern resolution and prohibits alignment between multiple layers.

University of Utah researchers have developed a method of direct-writing nanofibers and nanoparticles that enables the production of high-resolution, precise patterns. This technology is not only less expensive than current deposition technologies, but also enables direct-writing onto non-planar, or curved, surfaces.
