3D Printing by Two Photon Polymerization for Micro and Nanofabrication


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 nanometer to micrometer 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 field of photonics, plasmonics, micro-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 in labs like Harvard University, California Institute of Technology, Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, different National Labs and to 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.
