A*Star paves the way for real world nanotechnology

14 October 2013

Adhesives that leave no sticky residue, ‘skins’ that keep medical instruments germ-free, new anti-reflective protectors for displays or surfaces that prevent barnacles from attaching to ships. These are just some of the products that nanoimprinting technology is capable of producing.
Singapore’s A*Star’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering and its partners have launched a new Nanoimprint Foundry that will develop, test-bed and prototype specially engineered plastics and surfaces for the specific purpose of commercialising the technologies. Possible applications include dry adhesives.
