Nanoscribe Photonic Professional GT3D Printer

  • The world’s highest resolution 3D printer, based on two-photon polymerization (2PP)
  • Sub-micrometer resolution printing, with feature sizes down to 200 nm
  • Two powerful writing modes move the laser focus with respect to the photoresist, a piezo-mode for arbitrary 3D trajectories and a galvo-mode for ultra-fast structuring in layer-by-layer
  • This versatile system covers the broad demands encountered in nano, micro, and mesoscale fabrication

The Nanoscribe is the world’s highest resolution 3D printer, based on two-photon polymerization (2PP). It can achieve submicrometer resolution printing, with feature sizes down to 200nm.

These 3D printed samples (seen on the right of this page) mimic the exact geometry of focused ion beam (FIB) prepared specimen (20x7x1 μm) and can be used to help master ex situ and in situ lift-out micromanipulation methods.

These 3D printed specimens can be used for practice and training. 3D printed FIB teaching aids can help new FIB users learn lift-out steps in a timely and cost-effective manner, easily repeating lift-out steps without the need for creating expensive FIB specimens. FIB 3D printed
