  • Patent number: 8637587
    Abstract: Release agents with increased affinity toward nano-imprint lithography template surfaces interact strongly with the template during separation of the template from the solidified resist in a nano-imprint lithography process. The strong interaction between the surfactant and the template surface reduces the amount of surfactant pulled off the template surface during separation of a patterned layer from the template in an imprint lithography cycle. Maintaining more surfactant associated with the surface of the template after the separation of the patterned layer from the template may reduce the amount of surfactant needed in a liquid resist to achieve suitable release of the solidified resist from the template during an imprint lithography process. Strong association of the release agent with the surface of the template facilitates the formation of ultra-thin residual layers and dense fine features in nano-imprint lithography.

  • Patent number: 8530538
    Abstract: An ultraviolet hardenable ink composition excelling in the wetting characteristic (repellence prevention) of ink having impacted a recording medium. There is provided an ultraviolet hardenable ink composition characterized by containing a polyester-modified polydimethylsiloxane as a surfactant in an amount of 0.01 to 1% based on the ultraviolet hardenable ink. Preferably, at least allyl glycol and/or a N-vinyl compound is contained as a polymerizable compound. Incorporation of the polyester-modified polydimethylsiloxane in the surfactant has realized enhancing of the wetting characteristic on all nonabsorptive material surfaces and avoiding of ink repellence.
