Polycarbonate as an Elasto-Plastic Material Model for Simulation of the Microstructure Hot Imprint Process


The thermal imprint process of polymer micro-patterning is widely applied in areas such as manufacturing of optical parts, solar energy, bio-mechanical devices and chemical chips. Polycarbonate (PC), as an amorphous polymer, is often used in thermoforming processes because of its good replication characteristics. In order to obtain replicas of the best… (More)
