SPIE Photonics West: Nanoscribe’s CSO Michael Thiel on Additive Manufacturing of Micro-Optics

January 25,2018

At the upcoming world’s largest photonics event SPIE Photonics West Dr. Michael Thiel, Nanoscribe’s co-founder and CSO, will discuss optimized processes for the fabrication of micro-optics with a talk on “Additive Manufacturing for the Production of Micro-Optics” on January 30th at 2.20pm, talk 10544-35.

In recent years, industry players active in the business of optical devices have been adopting Nanoscribe’s 3D printers Photonic Professional GT for additive manufacturing of micro-optical elements. Taking advantage of the full 3D fabrication capabilities and the submicron resolution and precision, this technology is being used to tackle the requirements needed for precise and functional micro-optical elements. In this presentation, multi-level diffractive optical elements (DOEs) and refractive micro-lenses will showcase specific use cases.

More presentations from our customers will discuss their work on diverse applications ranging from complex free-form micro-optics, photonic crystals to cell scaffolds, microrobots and mechanical metamaterials. A detailed list of the talks with time and session references is available here.

From January 27th to February 1st 2018, Nanoscribe will participate at the BiOS Expo (Booth 8544) and at Photonics West (Booth 4368, North Hall).
