Seminar on 3D printing via two-photon polymerization (Nanoscribe GmbH) – September 27th, 2017

UPDATE:  Video links from the seminar are now available below.

The nanoFAB invites you to attend a public seminar on 3D printing via two-photon polymerization, presented by Alexander Legant from Nanoscribe GmbH. From 2:30–3:20 p.m. on September 27th, 2017, Mr. Legant will present a technology and applications overview of Nanoscribe’s Photonic Professional GT system. A general question-and-answer period will immediately follow the presentation.

Title:  “Two-photon polymerization in 3D printing sets new standards in micro and nanofabrication”
Date:  Wednesday, September 27th, 2017
Time: 2:30–3:20 p.m.
Location: ETLC E1-008

Abstract:  The achievements of the two-photon polymerization based world’s highest resolution 3D micro-printer will be presented. The device offers a defined control on the feature sizes and resolutions ranging from nanometre to micrometre scale and accessible print area of ~cm2. Subsequently, the printed structures can be transferred into metal, semiconductors, or ceramics by electro-plating or coating techniques. This versatility has opened new frontiers in the fields of photonics, plasmonics, optics, microfluidics, mechanical metamaterials,
biomimetics, life sciences, and micro-robotics. All this is made possible by the advancements in the software and hardware design of the printer that enables the realization of ideas only with few clicks. The decade of trusted use of this technology has found its way into labs like Harvard University, California Institute of Technology, Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, different national labs, and in several industrial applications as well. This presentation will therefore cover the latest advances utilizing this art of 3D microprinting that has made small things matter across the globe.

More information on this technology can be found in Nanoscribe’s Application Flyer.
