Physics Department Seminar - “High Resolution 3D Printing from Nano to Macro Scales" by Fabian Kohler, Nanoscribe

Monday, March 11, 2019
1:00 pm


Floor/Room #: 

Nanoscribe’s 3D printers drive a wide range of applications in science and industry. The development of key new technologies benefits substantially from 3D microprinting: Photonic and mechanical metamaterials, on-chip compound micro-optics, magnetically driven microrobots, or cell scaffolds for cancer research are some examples.

A broad range of substrates serve as print surfaces, including photonic chips for highly integrated devices. The 3D printed structures can be used directly or can serve as templates for post-print processes to achieve other materials beyond polymers. 3D printed parts with replicable topographies are highly suitable polymer masters for replication, enabling serial production of, e.g., injection molded high-precision parts.

This seminar will review many of the Nanoscribe’s capabilities and applications.  A system is current being installed at WPI as part of Lab for Education and Application Prototypes (LEAP) and be available for use in the near future.
