3D Additive Manufacturing driven towards the molecular scale

Prof. Dr. Martin Wegener , Institute of Applied Physics and Institute of Nanotechnology, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
It has become routine to print out any text or any color graphics within seconds upon the push of a button by using tabletop 2D printers. By analogy, tabletop 3D printers might someday allow to obtain any material, device, or system upon the push of a button. On the macroscale, 3D printing – or, more generally, 3D Additive Manufacturing – is already a worldwide megatrend. In this talk, I will give an introduction into laser based 3D printing on the micro- and nanoscale and describe the state-of-the-art. I will emphasize the challenges of achieving finer features below the diffraction barrier, of obtaining scalable and faster 3D printing, and of 3D printing multicomponent micro- and nano-architectures, including active structures. Application examples include diverse micro-optical components, metamaterials, scaffolds for biological cell culture, and 3D security features.
