Nanoscribe’s 3D printer Photonic Professional GT2 allows producing almost arbitrary micro-shapes with optically smooth surfaces in an additive and tool-free way. This effectively circumvents limitations imposed by mechanical tools, and geometrical or process design-constraints often encountered with techniques such as subtractive machining, (greyscale) lithography, photoresist reflow and wet-etching. In this way, steep slopes for high numeri-
cal aperture micro-lenses, arrays with high filling factors and varying curvatures, as well as more complex 3D shapes can be achieved. Mass replication is possible by using metal replicas of these shapes.
Customers both in science and industry use our equipment for the fabrication of micro-optics.
