SÜSS MicroTec And Rolith Cooperate On Nanolithography Technology

The firms anticipate the technology will enable the next generation of advanced products, such as high efficiency 3D solar cells, and building-integrated PVs.

SÜSS MicroTec, a leading supplier of equipment and process solution for the semiconductor industry and related markets, has entered into a joint development and exclusive license agreement with Rolith.

The two firms will develop and build nanostructuring equipment employing a disruptive nanolithography method developed by Rolith. Availability of a high throughput cost effective technique for nanostructuring over large areas of substrate materials brings new possibilities to renewable energy and green building markets.

Rolith’s patent pending nanolithography technology is based on a proprietary implementation of near-field optical lithography using cylindrically shaped rolling masks. Sub-wavelength resolution is achieved by phase-shift interference effect or plasmonic enhancement printing structures. Continuous mode of operation will allow high throughput and low cost production.

“We anticipate the technology will enable the next generation of advanced products, such as high efficiency 3D solar cells, building-integrated PVs, smart glass and superior quality coatings with anti-reflective, anti-glare, self-cleaning and anti-fog qualities", said Boris Kobrin, CEO and President of Rolith.

“We are delighted to partner up with SÜSS MicroTec who is known for their world class designs and excellent customer service. With their 60 years of experience with optical lithography systems SÜSS MicroTec has the necessary expertise and network to help Rolith to bring this much needed technology to market."

Our recent achievements with nanoimprint lithography systems have made us a leading expert for structuring substrates in MEMS and nano applications", stated Frank Averdung, President and CEO, SÜSS MicroTec AG. “Combined with our flexible equipment solutions the novel optical nanolithography technology by Rolith has the potential to bring high volume nanoimprint technology to market by fundamentally changing the cost structure compared to current technologies."
