Case Studies: NIL Learning Tools in Action

Real-world examples spotlight the benefits of the Desktop R2P NanoImprinter. From the Virginia Military Institute to the Southern Denmark University, educators across diverse geographies have adopted this compact unit to demystify complex concepts and spur cutting-edge research.

  • Virginia Military Institute and UPM Higher Technical School of Engineers in Telecommunication found the Desktop R2P to unify their educational approach, enabling clear instruction regardless of geographical barriers or NIL expertise levels.
  • In Denmark, esteemed institutions such as Southern Denmark University (SDU Virtual Tour) and Danish Technical University leverage the Desktop to lead pioneering research endeavours and cultivate industry partnerships. Projects like the ColorFoil project and various nano-optics research initiatives at the SDU Nano Optics Center exemplify this.
  • Sun Yat-sen University leveraged the compact unit to push the boundaries of nano replication, master design tests, and UV curing research.

“We ordered the Desktop R2P NanoImprinter last year and were very pleased – its operation is really simple, and it took us no time to start making patterns on several substrates. We are impressed with the tool’s flexibility and the range of substrates we can work with. As a multi-user facility, we have great plans for the nanoimprinter from creating specialist topographies for cell growth to prototyping designs for solar sails for satellites.”
