Morphotonics received a capital injection from high tech venture capital fund Innovation Industries. The Eindhoven manufacturer of roll-to-plate micro- and nano-imprint equipment will use the investment to set up a serial production process, accelerate market roll-out and develop new imprint stamps and resists.

“We’re delighted with the investment by Innovation Industries. In addition to financing, they offer a lot of experience in growing high tech companies like Morphotonics through the different stages of scaling up. We’ve entered an exciting phase in which we can strongly accelerate our growth and the scaling of our business,” commented Onno Lint, CEO at Morphotonics.

Building on technology developed by Philips to produce CDs, Morphotonics’ machines print optical micro- and nanostructures that can be used to enable new features in displays, such as haptics, 3D or holographic imaging. The structures can also improve the energy of solar panels by light trapping. The technology has already been adopted by customers in Asia, Europe and the United States.
