HEIDELBERG, Germany, March 30, 2021 — Photolithography company Heidelberg Instruments Mikrotechnik GmbH acquired Multiphoton Optics, a solution provider for 3D lithography via two-photon polymerization. The companies made the announcement in a shared press release. Following the completion of negotiations, Multiphoton Optics has become a wholly owned subsidiary of Heidelberg Instruments. The merger strengthens Heidelberg Instruments’ position in the micro-optics sector.

The move, said Konrad Roessler, CEO of Heidelberg Instruments, specifically closes a gap between conventional laser lithography, which he said is the basis of Heidelberg’s core business, and the nanostructuring technology that the company added to the Heidelberg Instruments Nano Division three years ago.

Photolithography is a key process in the manufacturing of semiconductor devices, integrated circuits, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). It is a photomechanical process used to transfer geometric patterns from a photomask or reticle to a photosensitive chemical photoresist on a substrate, typically a silicon wafer. The basic steps of photolithography include: Cleaning the substrate: The substrate, often a silicon wafer, is cleaned to remove any contaminants from its surface. ...
3d printing
3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), is a manufacturing process that builds three-dimensional objects layer by layer from a digital model. This technology allows the creation of complex and customized structures that would be challenging or impossible with traditional manufacturing methods. The process typically involves the following key steps: Digital design: A three-dimensional digital model of the object is created using computer-aided design (CAD) software. This...
