HENRIK B. VAN LENGERICH has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20220271261
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an article including a layer having a nanostructured first surface including nanofeatures and an opposing second surface, and an organic layer including a major surface attached to a portion of the nanofeatures. The nanostructured first surface includes protruding features that are formed of a single composition and/or recessed features. The nanofeatures and the major surface of the second layer together define at least one void. The present disclosure also provides a method of making the article including contacting nanofeatures of a layer having a nanostructured surface with a major surface of an organic layer and reacting at least one material to secure the two layers together. In addition, the present disclosure provides an optical information display and an OLED device including the article. The nanostructured surface of the article is protected from damage and contamination by the organic layer.

  • Publication number: 20210389503
    Abstract: Nanostructured articles, materials for the nanostructured articles, and intermediate articles for use in making the nanostructured articles. The nanostructured articles can be formed on a flexible film and are useful for optical metasurface applications and possibly other applications. The articles can include nanoreplicated layers or pattern transfer layers of engineered nanostructures.

  • Publication number: 20210161018
    Abstract: Methods of making metal patterns on flexible substrates are provided. Releasable solid layer is selectively formed on a patterned surface of the flexible substrate by applying a liquid solution thereon. Metal patterns on the flexible substrate can be formed by removing the releasable solid layer after metallization. In some cases, the releasable solid layer can be transferred from the patterned surface to a transfer layer where the metal patterns are formed.

  • Patent number: 10982064
    Abstract: A barrier film. The barrier film may include a substrate, an inorganic layer disposed on a side of the substrate, and an organic layer-by-layer structure disposed on a side of the inorganic layer, where in the organic layer-by-layer structure comprises a layer of a cationic polyelectrolyte and a layer of an anionic polyelectrolyte.

  • Publication number: 20200308419
    Abstract: Novel polymerizable ionic liquid compounds, and polymerizable compositions are described. The compositions comprise an acid functional monomer or acid-functional copolymer (or conjugate base thereof), and an imidazole compound (or conjugate acid thereof). The polymerizable compositions may be cast and cured to form a coating on a substrate, the coating capable of swelling on exposure to water so as to release from that substrate.
