Additive manufacturing of micro-parts on integrated circuits saves packaging costs and time
Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen, Germany. Growing demands on high-speed data communication, unmanned aerial vehicles and portable medical devices are attracting industries to new manufacturing methods like, for example, Nanoscribe’s direct laser writing technology. Currently, the production of photonic circuits and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) needed for these applications requires different manufacturing methods and multiple process steps for bringing together various components on one microchip. Now, with Nanoscribe’s highest resolution 3D printers one can print and integrate microscopic components directly on integrated circuits such as micro-lenses onto photonic circuits and deformable structures on MEMS actuators.

Press release by the IIT - Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genova (Italy), 8 February 2018
Researchers at IIT-Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia fabricated an artificial device reproducing a 1:1 scale model of the blood-brain barrier (BBB), the anatomical and functional structure that protects the central nervous system from external substances, such as contaminants, but also drugs when they are injected intravenously into the body. The device, which is a combination of artificial and biological components, will be fundamental for studying new therapeutic strategies to overcome blood-brain barrier and treat brain diseases, such as tumors.

Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen, Germany. Today, ten years ago, Nanoscribe GmbH was founded. Since that time, the company has grown to become a market and technology leader in the field of 3D printing at the nano- and micrometer scales. Now serving more than a thousand users and enjoying double-digit million revenues for three years running, the spin-off of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) now ranks among the most successful high-tech business formations in Germany of recent years.

Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen Nanoscribe – specialist for highest-precision 3D printing – will move into the ZEISS Innovation Hub at the Campus North of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Expected key benefits are strengthening of its innovation and acceleration of growth in science and industry. The construction of the €30 million hub is scheduled to begin in early 2018, it will cover 12,000 square meters of space.
Photonic Professional GT sets benchmarks in microfabrication
Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen The German company Nanoscribe develops and produces high-precision 3D printing solutions enabling research and industry to innovate by additive manufacturing. Previously, the resolution and precision that is needed in the fabrication of micro-optical components was not provided by conventional additive manufacturing technologies. Using Nanoscribe's 3D printer Photonic Professional GT, which is based on the technique of two-photon-polymerization, a broad range of almost arbitrary micro-optical shapes including standard refractive micro-optics, freeform optics, diffractive optical elements or even multiplet lens systems can now be printed in a one-step process. Hence, Nanoscribe's 3D printing solution disrupts and breaks with previously complex workflows, overcomes long-standing design limitations and enables unprecedented applications driven by advanced micro-optics.

Nanoscribe enables 3D printing of micro-optics
Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen The German company Nanoscribe is developing and producing high-precision 3D printing solutions enabling the micro-optics industry to innovate by additive manufacturing. Typically, the benefits of additive manufacturing are considered to be fast and flexible design iterations as well as freedom of design. But the usual 3D printing technologies available in the market fail to meet the resolution and precision requirements of optical applications.

Nanoscribe, a spin-off of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), has once again managed to make a big impact with a tiny present: As part of the HeKKSaGOn conference, which took place from September 29-30 in Karlsruhe, Japanese university presidents were given a 3D-printed miniature replication of the Karlsruhe landmark, a pyramid only 2 mm in height. For some special trickery, the specialists for high-resolution 3D printing on the nano- and micrometer scale, printed the logos of HeKKSaGOn, KIT, and Nanoscribe on the sides of the pyramid.

Nanoscribe’s 3D printer established on the US market
Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen In June, the 3D printer manufacturer Nanoscribe held its first user meeting in the US at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In collaboration with the institution’s Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS), which makes a Nanoscribe laser lithography system available both to internal and external users in its multi-user facility, the market and technology leader invited its clients to a two-day seminar.

Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen When assembling miniaturized optical systems, it is often necessary to place micro-optical elements such as single lenses or lens arrays above sensors or light-emitting devices at a specific distance. Despite of the trend of miniaturization, most of today's standard rapid prototyping technologies do not provide the high resolution and minimum feature size that are necessary to fabricate micro-parts.

Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen German researchers from the Institute for Integrative Nanosciences at IFW Dresden have developed micro-motors, which can deliver poorly swimming sperms to the oocyte for fertilization. The called “spermbots” were printed using Nanoscribe´s Photonic Professional GT system. They consist of tiny metal helices, controlled by a rotating magnetic field. The groundbreaking results have recently been published in ACS Journal Nano Letters.
Here you can see a movie of the spermbots (Prof. Oliver G. Schmidt, Dr. Mariana Medina Sánchez, Lukas Schwarz et al., IFW Dresden): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ww-x-VIFh-Q
