EVG nanoimprint lithographyEV Group (EVG) has reached a new milestone with the shipping of its 100th nanoimprint lithography (NIL) system. According to the company, this solidifies its 30 percent market share and leadership in the field.

"Nanoimprint lithography is an enabling technology for optical and microfluidic applications," noted Paul Lindner, Executive Technology Director for EV Group.  "With EVG's firm commitment to NIL development and commercialization, together with our industry-leading NIL products, including our EVG770 fully-automated NIL Stepper and EVG750 fully-automated Hot Embossing systems, we remain well positioned to benefit as these and other markets such as chemical and biosensor move into high-volume production." 

Although capital spending in the semiconductor industry is expected to fall in 2008 and 2009, market research firm Gartner said that technology buys would remain strong and that lithography tool ales would be a less affected by the spending cuts than other tools.
