After the invention of the laser in 1960, optics turned into photonics. In today's telecommunication technology, photons have already become the main carrier of information. During the last decades, a number of pioneering developments have opened the door to a completely new class of materials.

The concepts of photonic crystals and metamaterials allow molding the flow of light as well as controlling the dynamics of photons. These special properties of such nanostructured materials are subject of current research activities.

Shown below is a series of structures fabricated by means of the direct laser writing process achieved with Photonic Professional systems.
