Hot Embossing Book Review:

This book is an overview of replication technology for micro- and nanostructures, focusing on the techniques and technology of hot embossing, a scaleable and multi-purpose technology for the manufacture of devices such as BioMEMS and microfluidic devices which are expected to revolutionize a wide range of medical and industrial processes over the coming decade. The hot embossing process for replicating microstructures was developed by the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) where the author is head of the Nanoreplication Group. Worgull fills a gap in existing information by fully detailing the technology and techniques of hot embossing. He also covers nanoimprinting, a process related to hot embossing, with examples of actual research topics and new applications in nanoreplication. *A practical and theoretical guide to selecting the materials, machinery and processes involved in microreplication using hot embossing techniques. *Compares different replication processes such as: micro injection molding, micro thermoforming, micro hot embossing, and nanoimprinting *Details commercially available hot embossing machinery and components like tools and mold inserts

Handbook of Thin Films Five Volume Set Book Review:

This five-volume handbook focuses on processing techniques, characterization methods, and physical properties of thin films (thin layers of insulating, conducting, or semiconductor material). The editor has composed five separate, thematic volumes on thin films of metals, semimetals, glasses, ceramics, alloys, organics, diamonds, graphites, porous materials, noncrystalline solids, supramolecules, polymers, copolymers, biopolymers, composites, blends, activated carbons, intermetallics, chalcogenides, dyes, pigments, nanostructured materials, biomaterials, inorganic/polymer composites, organoceramics, metallocenes, disordered systems, liquid crystals, quasicrystals, and layered structures. Thin films is a field of the utmost importance in today's materials science, electrical engineering and applied solid state physics; with both research and industrial applications in microelectronics, computer manufacturing, and physical devices. Advanced, high-performance computers, high-definition TV, digital camcorders, sensitive broadband imaging systems, flat-panel displays, robotic systems, and medical electronics and diagnostics are but a few examples of miniaturized device technologies that depend the utilization of thin film materials. The Handbook of Thin Films Materials is a comprehensive reference focusing on processing techniques, characterization methods, and physical properties of these thin film materials.

A Basic Experimental Study of Ultrasonic Assisted Hot Embossing Process for Rapid Fabrication of Microlens Arrays Book Review:

Abstract: This paper reports a highly effective technique for rapid fabrication of microlens arrays based on an ultrasonic assisted hot embossing process. In this method, a thin stainless steel mold with micro-holes array is fabricated by a photolithography and wet etching process. Then, the thin stainless steel mold with micro-holes array is placed on top of a plastic substrate (PMMA plate) and the stack is placed in an ultrasonic vibration embossing machine. During ultrasonic assisted hot embossing operation, the surface of the stainless steel mold with micro-holes array presses against the thermoplastic PMMA substrate. Under proper ultrasonic vibration time, embossing pressure and hold time, the softened polymer will just partially fill the circular holes and due to surface tension, form a convex lens surface. After the stainless steel mold is removed, the microlens array patterns on the surface of plastic substrate can be obtained. The total cycle time is less than 10 s. Finally, geometrical and optical properties of the fabricated plastic microlens arrays were measured and proved satisfactory. This technique shows great potential for fabricating microlens array on plastic substrates with high productivity and low cost.

Micro Optics Book Review:

This text examines the technology behind the plethora of modern industrial and domestic technologies which incorporate micro-optics eg. CDs, cameras, automated manufacturing systems, mobile communications etc. It includes a simple but comprehensive introduction to micro-optical developments design, and an overview of fabrication and replication technology. The theoretical, practical and industrial developments in micro-scale optoelectronics continue apace in the late 1990s. In this book, a distinguished group of physicists and engineers describe the current state of research and applications in micro-optics. It provides the theoretical background and an overview of current technology, with several chapters taking a deeper look at specific recent applications and future trends. The book concentrates on diffractive and refractive micro- optical elements, such as lenses, fan-out gratings, optimized phase elements and polarisers. Sections are included on the simulation and optimization of design for micro-optics and subsequently the efficient transformation from design to real optical elements, using techniques such as e-beam writing, laser beam writing, lithography, etching and thin film deposition.
