3D printed micro- and nano-optics for future integrated vision and endoscopy systems

Project description

3D printing finds its way in micro-optics

3D printing has revolutionised many industrial branches as it cuts the cost and time involved in launching new products, speeds up production, and optimises design and quality. EU-funded researchers working on the 3DPRINTEDOPTICS project will focus on finding the perfect production process to create micro-optics prototypes on-demand that are less than a micrometre in size and extremely flexible via the femtosecond laser writing technique. The ultimate aim is to produce a tinier microscope than the ones already in use at the tip of an optical fibre for unprecedented imaging accuracy.
