Making the jump from the laboratory to the manufacturing floor.
MISSION: To partner companies in developing solutions using nanoimprint technology, by focusing on development, translational and manufacturing solutions.
The A*STAR Nanoimprint Foundry was officially launched in 2013. The foundry was launched as a program led by the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) with the participation of sister SERC RIs such as the Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC), Institute of Microelectronics (IME) and the then Data Storage Institute (DSI). The goals of the program are to advance world-class nanoimprint and nanotechnology based research at A*STAR, to carry out the transfer of nanoimprint technology to companies, to develop skilled and specialized manpower, to build a dynamic infrastructure and toolset to advance nanoimprint in Singapore and finally to support the development of a nanomanufacturing based industry in Singapore.
