Nano-/micro-scale structures of crosslinked polytetrafluoroethylene (RX-PTFE) have been directly fabricated by focused ion beam (FIB). In this study, the nano-/micro-fabricated RX-PTFE were attempted to be applied for the polymeric molds of nanoimprint lithography (NIL). The ability of the RX-PTFE mold for electron beam NIL (EB-NIL) was evaluated by the imprinted patterns, and compared with ultraviolet NIL (UV-NIL) method. The RX-PTFE molds and the imprinted structures obtained by UV- /EB-NIL were observed by a field emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM) and a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The height of imprinted structures was 860 nm, and the thinnest line width achieved in the experiments showed 180 nm with EB-NIL process. The estimated aspect ratio was 4.8.
