3-D Printer With Nano-Precision
ScienceDaily (Mar. 12, 2012) — Printing three-dimensional objects with incredibly fine details is now possible using “two-photon lithography.” With this technology, tiny structures on a nanometer scale can be fabricated. Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) have now made a major breakthrough in speeding up this printing technique: The high-precision-3D-printer at TU Vienna is orders of magnitude faster than similar devices. This opens up completely new areas of application, such as in medicine.
