Technology / Applications
Yes, Carpe Diem provides tools for the development and production of nano enabled printed electronics, microfluidics, meta materials and optical devices…however our experience, capability and agility are the heart and soul of the company.
We have an industry-leading set of advanced capabilities*, including:
- Nano Imprint Lithography
- Interferometic Alignment and Inspection
- Spatial Atomic Layer Deposition.
We also have advanced technology in the areas of:
- Contact or Proximity Lithography
- Direct Write (maskless) Lithography
- Ink Jet
- Optical alignment
Our team has decades of experience in the underlying volume production technologies which are and will be powering this new era of products and devices.
Whether the topic is Nano Imprint Lithography (with its roots back to compact disks and holograms), or Atomic Layer Deposition, or many of the technologies with precedents from wafer fabrication or printing, our team has been there. We bring those experiences and insights inventively forward.
We’ve enjoyed solving challenging problems for world- renowned customers and partners such as the University of Massachusetts Amherst. We’ve proudly brought our expertise to unique challenges such as building the brightest LED beacon in the world, which sits atop One World Trade Center in New York City.
