Developers at Laser Zentrum Hanover (LZH, Germany) are using their two-photon polymerization system to create 100-200 nm structures. The idea is similar to rapid prototyping, but in 3D rather than building with 2D layers. Twin laser beams, generating femtosecond laser pulses focused at the same point in a liquid resin, sweeping through three dimensions, form the nanostructures or microstructures. Two-photon polymerization solidifies the resin at the localized focus area.
Digital healthcare devices and wearable electronic products need to be thoroughly tested, lest they live short, ignominious lives, an expert will tell attendees at UBM’s upcoming Designer of Things Conference in San Jose, Calif.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
