More than nanoimprint – replication and combinationCurriculum Vitae:
Hella-Christin Scheer received her PhD in Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Berlin. Starting from work on solar cells, the focus of her research later moved to dry etching. Since 1995 she has been Professor for Microstructure Engineering at the University of Wuppertal and has became one of the pioneers of nanoimprint.
Her group investigated the technological aspects of this trend-setting mechanical approach for the patterning of polymeric surfaces, first focussing on lithography applications and later on nanoimprint combination techniques. Major contributions cover the fundamental aspects of polymer mechanics as well as introducing and exploiting the potential of conventional photoresists for this technology. Beyond combining the nanoimprint of photoresists with exposure techniques in the UV- and VUV-range, a recent aspect is to control the properties of novel materials by means of imprinting, e.g. by inducing phase separation or crystallisation.
