The flexible UV stamps were manufactured by using rolltoroll imprinting on the fluorinated mold material (Ftemplate) on polycarbonate substrate from Asahi Glass or cellulose acetate film from Clarifoil. Mold material was patterned with conventional thermal roll-to-roll nanoimprinting process using a flexible Nimaster  as a stamp. This allows us to prepare tens of UV molds very easily for further processing. Patterned templates were cut off from the web and wrapped on two printing rolls thereby making a “printing belt”. This belt works as a mold for rolltoroll UV imprint experiments.
