  • Microfabrication Workstation

Sep 2011
Newport CorporationRequest Info
Newport Corp. has introduced the Laser μFAB, a tabletop laser microfabrication workstation for research applications. It is designed for use in additive and subtractive processes, including 3-D microfabrication by two-photon polymerization (TPP), laser ablation and surface structuring of materials, volumetric writing of waveguides and microfluidics, nanosurgery and microdissection. Applications using TPP in custom or commercial photoresists include photonics, microelectronics and microelectromechanical systems. Materials that can be used in ablation and surface structuring include biological targets. Waveguides and microfluidics can be volumetrically written in glasses and polymers. Nanosurgery and microdissection can be performed in vivo for subcellular investigations of model organisms. The Laser μFAB can be configured for use with femtosecond laser oscillators, amplifiers, optoelectronic pulse amplifiers and other types of lasers in the visible to near-infrared range.

laser ablation
The removal of material from a surface by high intensity pulsed or CW laser radiation emission.
two-photon polymerization
An additive fabrication technique, referred to as TPP, used to make 3D microstructures with submicron feature sizes by using a near-infrared (NIR) emission that excites a photosensitive resin, triggering multiphoton absorption where light intensity is highest and a polymerization process that changes it from a liquid to a solid. When the volume of the focused laser beams, or voxels, are precisely overlapped, 3D microstructures are created and revealed by washing away unsolidified resin with an...
