Intelligent Micro Patterning Provides SF-100 to Purdue University for Development of Three Dimensional MicroScale Rapid Prototyping
St. Petersburg, Florida, April 5, 2006: Intelligent Micro Patterning, LLC, St. Petersburg, Florida, announced the sale of an SF-100 maskless exposure system to the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana. The SF-100 is a unique, maskless photolithography system that utilizes patented Smart Filter technology, licensed by Intelligent Micro Patterning, LLC from the University of South Florida. Smart Filter technology incorporates proprietary, cutting- edge, micro-optical techniques to rapidly project master images directly onto diverse substrate materials, such as quartz, ceramics, and plastics, without the use of photomasks. The main application of the system will be the development of processes used to rapidly prototype three dimensional structures.
Dr. Jay Sasserath, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "This is a significant opportunity for Intelligent Micro Patterning. By applying smart filter technology to this unique application area, new processes may be developed that will expand the markets that we serve. Rapid prototyping of new designs is a well accepted engineering practice in many technical fields and, by developing new methods for this technique, we expect to find many new applications for our technology."
Dr. William Chappell, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University added, "We are looking forward to working with the SF-100 in our laboratory. Intelligent Micro Patterning has worked with us to provide a reliable, proven system as the foundation for these research programs. The ability to use smart filter technology with new and unique materials will be a great benefit to our experimentation, allowing us to adapt the technology with commercially available substances to provide state of the art technological solutions."
