Patent number 8563086 is assigned to
The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Contemporary advances in nanotechnology have allowed several types of nano materials to become widely available for use in many different industries. The ability to measure and manipulate materials on a nanometer level now makes it possible to recognize new nano materials with enhanced properties and to thus broaden the application area of nano structures (e.g., nano wires) made with nano materials.
In addition to the background information obtained for this patent, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventor's summary information for this patent: "Techniques for forming a nano pattern on a substrate are provided. In one embodiment, a method for forming a nano pattern on a substrate includes coating a part of a structural guide with a hydrophobic polymer, positioning the structural guide on a substrate, coating at least a part of the substrate with a film made of a block copolymer, and annealing the film made of the block copolymer to align the block copolymer.
"The foregoing summary is illustrative only and is not intended to be in any way limiting. In addition to the illustrative aspects, embodiments, and features described above, further aspects, embodiments, and features will become apparent by reference to the drawings and the following detailed description."
