In collaboration with the university’s Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS), which houses a Nanoscribe laser lithography system, attendees were shown the latest software and hardware developments, along with areas of application for the Photonic Professional GT 3D printer. The technological possibilities range from the manufacture of extremely high-resolution mesoscale objects to applications in photonics and plasmonics, requiring structure sizes of just a few hundred nanometers.

“The presentations by our clients on their various applications were the absolute highlight for me,” said Martin Hermatschweiler, CEO of Nanoscribe. “It is incredibly fascinating and enlightening to discover firsthand what different disciplinary fields are making use of our devices, which operate based on the principle of two-photon polymerization. The full scope of applications ranged from printing nanostructures at the CNS, to producing plasmonic displays at the University of Florida, to engineering new types of materials whose creation would have previously been impossible, as the scientists at Caltech presented.”
