  • Patent number: 10668496
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an imprint template manufacturing apparatus includes a stage, a supply head, a moving mechanism, and a controller. The stage supports a template that includes a base having a main surface, and a convex portion provided on the main surface and having an end surface on a side opposite to the main surface. A concavo-convex pattern to be pressed against a liquid material to be transferred is formed on the end surface. The supply head supplies a liquid-repellent material in a liquid form to the template on the stage. The moving mechanism moves the stage and the supply head relative to each other in a direction along the stage. The controller controls the supply head and the moving mechanism such that the supply head applies the liquid-repellent material to at least the side surface of the convex portion so as to avoid the concavo-convex pattern.
