Pixelligent Launches PixNIL™ Family of High Index Products for Nanoimprint Applications

Baltimore – March 29, 2021 – Pixelligent Technologies, whose PixClear® Designer Compounds™ dramatically boost the efficiency and sustainability of consumer electronics and clean energy applications, today announces the launch of PixNIL™ formulated products for nanoimprint lithography (NIL) and thin-film applications. Initial target applications include Augmented and Mixed Reality (AR/MR) waveguides, Diffractive Optical Elements (DOE) used in 3D sensing and sensor optics, lightguides for displays, and various other Optoelectronic applications. With refractive indices ranging from 1.7 to 1.9, the PixNIL™ products can be applied through nanoimprint, spin coating, inkjet, and slot-die coating methods.

“Our customers have been requesting high refractive index PixClear® products in ready-to-use formulations to simplify product development and acclerate their go-to-market time,” said Craig Bandes, Pixelligent President and CEO. “Our PixNIL™ has been designed to meet the ever increasing optical performance and efficiency requirements for next generation AR/MR devices, 3D sensors and optics, and a broad array of display technologies. The PixNIL™ formulated product line is the first of many that Pixelligent will be introducing and will soon include products that reach refractive indices of 2.0 and beyond,” added Bandes.

The PixNIL™ product line is available in both solvent containing and solvent-free versions and covers a broad range of high refractive indices to match customer requirements. PixNIL™ products can be used to create high index films and form nanoimprinted structures and microlens arrays with excellent optical performance and robust mechanical properties. PixNIL™ is compatible with roll-to-roll (R2R), roll-to-plate (R2P), and plate-to-plate (P2P) NIL processes.
