CEO Martin Hermatschweiler welcomed EPIC Director Dr. Jose Pozo to Nanoscribe's DemoLab this week. During the visit, the EPIC responsible for technology and innovation experienced a live demonstration of the 3D printing process on the Photonic Professional GT2. With the technical experts of Nanoscribe, Pozo discussed promising applications in the field of optics and photonics as well as the implementation of Nanoscribe's 3D printing technology into standard industrial processes for the fabrication of micro-optics.

For example, 3D printed high-precision micro-optics can be used as polymer masters for replication processes such as injection molding, hot embossing and nanoimprint. The use of 3D printed polymer masters in the production chain of micro-optics enables serial manufacturing of highly sophisticated optical components that are required in mobile and augmented-reality devices as well as in the automotive industry and advanced instrumentation in medical engineering.

"We can imagine organizing a joint EPIC meeting in Karlsruhe to support networking within the rapidly growing photonics industry", said Martin Hermatschweiler at the meeting with Dr. Jose Pozo. "Next year, e.g, after our move into the ZEISS Innovation Hub in front of KIT's Campus North, would be a good time for that," continued Hermatschweiler. Since 2014 Nanoscribe is a member of the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC). The industry is a strategic target market of the company, which is well networked with scientific institutes and internationally operating companies.
