EGGENSTEIN-LEOPOLDSHAFEN, Germany, Jan. 11, 2014 — The Photonic Professional GT 3-D printer by Nanoscribe GmbH produces complex structures on the nano- and micron scale for research and development, and for potential industrial applications in optics, medicine, fluidics, electronics and mechanics.
Two-photon polymerization in combination with pivoted galvo mirrors is implemented into a commercially available lithography system, which can execute complex structures with feature sizes down to 160 nm and heights ranging from a few hundred nanometers up to the millimeter range on a 100 × 100-mm writing area.
The patterning process allows both additive and subtractive manufacturing of polymers on a broad range of substrates and materials. Through postprocessing steps, the fabricated polymer templates can be cast into metals or semiconductors.
Several options and accessories are available, including immersion objectives for oil and dip-in laser lithography-compatible photoresists, substrate holders for specific applications, and cleanroom configuration of the vibration-isolation table.
The Photonic Professional GT is a 2014 Prism Award finalist in the Advanced Manufacturing category.
