Nanoimprinting turns ordinary material surfaces into multi-functional surfaces and brings vast opportunities for businesses dealing in a range of optical components, biomedical devices and consumer products. The global nanotechnology market is expected to exceed US$125 Billion mark by 2024.

Established in 2013, the nanoimprint foundry in IMRE houses state-of-the-art nanoimprint and mold fabrication facilities to accelerate the development of real-world applications. Vignesh’s talk will delve into the capabilities and expertise of the nanoimprint foundry; how the foundry can help local companies address their challenges and facilitate the translation of nanoimprinted products from the laboratory to the marketplace.
