  • Patent number: 10538017
    Abstract: A method of transferring a flexible layer to a substrate makes use of a partial bulge in the flexible layer, which does not make contact with the substrate. The partial bulge advances to the location of an alignment marker on the substrate. When alignment adjustments are needed, they are made with the partial bulge in place so that more reproducible positioning is possible when fully advancing the flexible layer against the substrate.

  • Patent number: 10088747
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and apparatus for contacting a relief stamping surface of a flexible stamp with a receiving surface of a substrate. The method and apparatus can be used in an imprinting method. During the method and with the apparatus, creation or breaking of contact near a contact front (border) of a preformed contact area in which a part of a locally bent relief stamping surface is in contact with the stamp receiving surface, the speed of such creation or breaking is varied for different parts of the flexible stamp such that this contact front moves over the stamp receiving surface with different speed at different locations along a contact front movement trajectory on the stamp receiving surface. This may be used to optimize throughput when using such method and apparatus.
