Exciting news! Heidelberg Instruments is pleased to announce the launch of its new two-photon polymerization MPO 100, a multi-user tool that combines both the requirements of 3D lithography with resolutions in the 100 nm range and 3D microprinting with structure heights of over one centimeter, all in one device with a wide range of applications in optics, photonics, biomedical engineering and more.
1 – 10 – 100 – 1000: The new, modular TPP-based 3D printing platform can achieve heights of over 1 cm, surfaces with roughness in the order of 10 nm, structure sizes of less than 100 nm, and writing speeds over 1000 mm/s.
The MPO 100 works with a laser wavelength in the green spectral range, which is ideally suited for the 3D structuring of typical photoresists. Furthermore, MPO 100 is optimized to use the hybrid polymers (ORMOCER®s), particularly important for various applications. In addition to sophisticated algorithms to maximize structure quality, the synchronized scanning system offers the possibility of stitching-free patterning.
The MPO 100 is currently the only tool in the market equipped with a flowbox that guarantees temperature stability of up to 0.1°C and thus provides the necessary stability for large-scale exposures. Application-specific writing modes enable customer-specific printing requirements and distinguish the MPO 100 as a multi-user tool.
