Paper Title:
Surface Modification of Plastic Thin Film Using Anodic Aluminum Oxide Template for Nano Imprint
  Abstract

Nano-porous anodic alumina oxide (AAO) templates are fabricated by anodizing method. The average diameter of nano-porous anodic alumina is 200 nm. The molded plastic thin film (Polycarbonate, PC) with nano-structure is fabricated by AAO as mold insert for nanoimprint. This research discusses the surface property of molded plastic thin film for different processing parameters (embossing temperature, embossing pressure, embossing time, de-molding temperature) on nanoimprint. The original contact angle of PC material without nano-structrue is about 78.2°. The contact angle of molded PC with nano-structrue is about 115.5°. The contact angle of molded plastic film (PC) with nano-structure is larger than that without nano-structure. The hydrophilic property of PC material has changed to hydrophobic property. A significant advantage of the fabrication process employed in this work is that it can create the good surface modification of plastic thin film.
