These studies reveal the development of a new version of nano-impression lithography using chemical solutions. The novelty of the soft-NIL method is the scale-up and nanostructuration of diferent technological substrates in a fast, industrializable and cost-efficient way. In a first work, the nanostructuring of thin piezoelectric epitaxial α-quartz thin films on silicon was achieved. This progress, within the framework of the ERC SENSiSOFT project coordinated by Adrien Carretero, will allow in the near future the production of ultra-sensitive piezoelectric sensors for applications in biomedicine. In a second work, the soft-nil process was transferred onto borosilicate substrates which allowed the first high resolution mapping of the organization and dynamics of cell membranes. This latest research work is the result of a collaboration between the IES-CNRS (Adrien Carretero, David Sanchez and Raissa Rathar group M2a) and IRIM, team: " Biologie Quantitative du Trafic Membranaire et Pathogénèse, Laura Picas”.
