The drive towards miniaturization, coupled with the ability to create nanostructured materials with superior function, has led to the development of several techniques for the fabrication of nanoscale structures and patterns. Among the most promising strategies for surface patterning, soft (nano)imprint lithography has demonstrated the unique ability to replicate features ranging from the micro to the nanoscale. In order to improve and exploit the viability of this process, we have developed a family of patternable materials that possess several qualities that render them useful in a myriad of applications. The talk will highlight our results from the projects employing thiol-ene based materials for the development of new polymer systems for soft lithography, including their characterization and use in light extraction strategies from GaN LEDs.
