TechConnect Innovation Program

Nanoscale Offset Printing System (NanoOPS)

Northeastern Univ. Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing, MA, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

The Nanoscale offset printing system (NanoOPS) performs multi-scale nanomanufacturing processes to print multilayered heterogeneous nanomaterials onto various substrates. The fully automated cluster tool has five modules for the assembly, transfer, registration and alignment. It uses Damascene templates to print patterns for applications such as electronics, sensors, energy, medical devices.

Primary Application Area: Electronics, Sensors & Communications

Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 6

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: We can reduce the manufacturing costs for printed devices. The materials are suspended in water, and the manufacturing environment does not require a vacuum or ultra-clean facilities.
