The micro-and nano lithography solutions provided by Obducat are highly versatile. Our technologies enable the creation of new and improved characteristics and functionalities in our customers’ products, which is key as the demand for smaller, lighter, more efficient and more complex nano-based applications continues to increase.
Our key technologies and processes embedded in our products enable our customers to produce high quality products at competitive cost levels. Industries which apply the Obducat technologies successfully today are companies working within the application areas listed below.
Optical & Photonic Devices
Nanotechnology is applied within the field of both optical and photonic components. World leading companies are using Obducat’s proprietary NIL technology to produce nano patterns on camera lenses and achieving improved image quality by doing so. Obducat’s tools are also used by manufacturers of semiconductor lasers.
LEDs light up buildings, cars, streets and our homes. Both LEDs and OLEDs combine brightness and energy efficiency with minimal material consumption, reducing the overall environmental footprint. LED-based displays (so-called micro- and mini- LED displays) are expected to contribute to further growth in the LEDs industry. For Obducat the success of this development equals business opportunities as Obducat’s nanolithography technologies has strong advantages that can solve some of the technical challenges that LED manufacturers face when realizing micro-LED displays.
The global need and interest for MEMS and Sensor Devices is continuously growing. The technologies are often associated with so-called “smart” cities or “Internet of Things” (IoT) and Obducat is a recognized supplier of the resist- and wet processing solutions needed to produce the devices. Examples of applications are face recognition, gyroscopes, humidity sensors and vibration sensors. Other examples of products that utilize MEMS technologies are devices such as blood pressure sensors, microphones and speakers for mobile devices.
A more efficient health care system requires the development of new solutions and devices, with an improved accuracy for analytics and for diagnostic applications. Today, there are simpler systems available but to further develop these systems and to enhance their inherent capabilities and enable cost reductions in the health care, more intelligent systems need to realized- This is where Nanoimprint lithography is anticipated to play a key role.
