Micro and Nano-Scale Surface Information Programming on Transparent Multilayer Shape Memory Films

Zhenpeng Li, Case Western Reserve University
Micro and nano-scale optical patterns were embossed and programmed on the surface of PVAc/PU multilayer shape memory films produced by forced assembly co-extrusion. In order to render the transparent films with characteristic optical properties, surface patterns ranging from micro to nano scale, incorporating a microprismatic pattern and a diffraction grating pattern, were hot-embossed on the surface of the PVAc/PU multilayer films. The patterned surface is programmed by compression and uniaxial stretching at specific temperature conditions and the recovery temperature employed to switch the corresponding optical property of the film. Based on this switchable optical property, the patterned PVAc/PU multilayer film can be employed as a “hidden” anti-counterfeiting feature triggered by heat for authentication.
