ABSTRACT: aBeam Technologies, Inc. proposes a new printing technology for fabricating photonic devices. This nanofabrication process could potentially reduce to a single step, the fabrication of photonic crystals by direct imprinting on inorganic materials. The method is low cost and suitable for large-scale areas. The demonstration of feasibility of the method will provide the basis for fabricating a new class of quantum-dot nanolasers in Phase II. BENEFIT: Our approach will revolutionize the fabrication of nanophotonic components and will allow development of new photonic devices. The first targeted application will be a new class of quantum-dot nanolaser arrays. It will then be expanded into other areas of photonic applications, such as for displays. The method promises to enable the development of many other nanophotonic applications.
