The variously shaped gold patterns can be generated from the polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) mold using line patterns by the capillary force lithography (CFL) process, which is a kind of nanoimprint method following the two-cycle method. After fabrication of micro- or nanosized line patterns at the first cycle, the patterned substrate is used as a substrate for the second cycle of CFL. When the other stamp is placed on the first pattern, rotated by a certain angle with respect to the first stamp, only the overlapped parts remained dot-shaped after the etching process. The various shapes and sizes of patterns can be produced by controlling the CFL conditions such as polymer thickness, reactive ion etching (RIE) time, and degree of rotation angle. The key advantage of the double imprint lithography method is to get the nanosized isolated dot-shaped patterns from microsized line patterns. If we fabricate nanosized isolated dot-shaped patterns directly, we should need predesigned patterns in the form of a master, which is generally prepared by a high-cost and time-consuming process such as E-beam lithography. The successful applications of large-area periodic patterns are nanoelectronic devices, nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS), and biosensors, the template of which is the master of nanoimprint lithography (NIL) and stamp fabrication in soft lithography.
