C2018-06 – Digitization and Fabrication of Custom Surface Topographies with Submicron Resolution

Technology # 18-06 A modality for sub-micron resolution digitization and fabrication of custom surfaces/topographies Surface topography affects many surface properties such as friction, wetting, and optical properties as well as chemical and biological compatibility of the surface. Some existing methods used to reduce friction and wear on metal surfaces often create limited texture geometries and provide poor dimensional control of the textures. Other approaches for creating dimples on surfaces leads to limited lateral resolutions. There are also other techniques for fabricating surface topographies, but most of the reported surface textures are 2D and the geometric parameters such as size, shape, and pitch distance are predefined. This invention/technology is available for licensing.
