Canon Nanotechnologies, Inc. Key Developments

David Gino to Become the CEO of the New Molecular Imprints

Molecular Imprints Inc. announced it has signed an agreement to sell its semiconductor imprint lithography equipment business to Canon Inc. Mr. David Gino, Molecular Imprints COO, will become the CEO of the new Molecular Imprints once the company is spun out just prior to the closing of the merger agreement with Canon. The merger is expected to be completed by April of 2014 after normal shareholder and government approvals.

Molecular Imprints, Inc. Develops a Roll-Based Jet and Flash(R) Imprint Lithography (J-Fil(R)) Technology

Molecular Imprints, Inc. announced it has developed a roll-based Jet and Flash(R) Imprint Lithography (J-FIL(R)) technology and process that can readily be applied to the display industry. This new technology has been successfully used to fabricate high performance wire grid polarizers (WGPs) that can be integrated into flat panel displays. The Flat Panel Display (FPD) industry continues to pursue new technologies that enhance the end-user experience. One such innovation is to replace conventional polarizer films with integrated WGPs. Polarizers in liquid crystal displays (LCD), are passive devices that control the output of light of the display. WGPs, which typically consist of a dense array of sub-100 nm aluminum lines, are already used commercially in projector displays. It is expected that an integrated WGP will improve the power efficiency and color fidelity of a flat panel display while making them thinner and at a lower cost. Other applications of interest that are well suited for MII's roll-based J-FIL technology include thin film transistors, color filters, photonic crystals and touch panels.
