Glass Substrate with UV Imprinted Polymer Moth Eye Structure
Artificial polycarbonate moth eye structured plate was used to emboss the moth eye nano-pattern into PVC films. Embossing was done at 100°C to prevent any damage on polycarbonate template. With embossing of moth eye nano-patterns, transmittance of PVC film was increased up to 6% over 400nm to 800nm wavelength region. This embossed PVC film was then used as an imprint template after depositing thin layer of SiO2 and self-assembled monolayer. Consequently, polymer based moth eye nano-patterns were formed on glass template after UV imprinting and its transmittance was increased from 90% to 92%.
