FRANKLIN, Mass. /Massachusetts Newswire/ — Carpe Diem Technologies has been issued Patent US9804488 for the production of products incorporating NIL features. The system is entitled “System and method for fabricating miniature structures on a flexible substrate.”
“The key claims in this patent allow manufacturers to fabricate and align nano-imprinted features with little or no apparent visual contrast,” explains John S. Berg, Carpe Diem’s founder and CEO.
Alignment and assembly is an increasingly important and difficult requirement for products whose performance is predicated on low-cost materials and extreme precision. These integrated optical and electronic products can now be made on low-cost substrates such as plastic film, flexible glass or even paper.
The patent’s key claims facilitate roll-to-roll or flexible panel manufacturing of very precise complex devices – inexpensively.
Products enabled run the gamut from startups to mature industries.
Applications include (partial list):
* Virtual reality headgear and displays
* Document security and counterfeit prevention
* Active medical device patches
* Advanced high consumer impact labels and packaging
* Low-cost ultrafiltration filters for liquids and gasses
* High-capacity printed batteries
* High-efficiency energy generation from solar and thermal sources.
