Heidelberg, Germany (PRWEB) June 8, 2006
Heidelberg Instruments announced the sale of an advanced DWL66 fs maskless laser lithography system to the Institute of Material Research and Engineering(IMRE), a research institute of Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research(A*STAR). The system will be operated by the SERC Nanofabrication & Characterisation Cluster (SNFC), which lends characterization support and expertise to all research institutes under A*STAR, Singapore universities and industries.
The DWL66 fs maskless lithography system is capable of binary and grey scale exposure, layer to layer alignment, and is able to produce minimum features down to 0.6 microns.
"We look forward to working with SNFC at IMRE – an organization working on cutting edge research in fields of science and nanotechnology, including optoelectronics, nanomaterials, chemicals, and polymers. Our DWL66 fs system, equipped with an Argon Ion laser, will assist IMRE and A*STAR in fabricating photomasks, support certain projects related to direct lithography application (binary and grey level exposures on various types of resists, including SU8) and nanotechnology research," states Alexander Forozan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Heidelberg Instruments.
