3D laser lithography system based on 2-photon lithography for the production of microoptics
with sub-micrometer resolution.
In the eight years it has been in Dalgety Bay it has grown from a technology-based startup to a leader in designing and manufacturing advanced microoptics
for the laser industry.
Specific topics of interest include: optically variable devices, microoptics
, nano-optics; identification and authentication methods; machine readable methodologies, standards and developments; substrates, inks, coatings and printing; image technology and product intelligence; digital and 3D printing; transparent security features, substrates, and their applications; standards and analytic techniques for testing of optical techniques & devices.
The topics include light propagation, refractive and reflective microoptics
, compound and integrated free-space optics, plasmonics, and left-handed materials.
Microoptoelectromechanical systems (MOEMS) is not some special class of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) but in fact it is MEMS merged with microoptics
which involves sensing or manipulating optical signals .
Hydrogels, both synthetic and natural, are highly biocompatible and can be used for scaffolds in many biomedical applications (13), microoptics
(14), and drug delivery (15).
The largest among the projects is planned by PT Nippon Sheet Glass Microoptics
Batam, wholly owned by NSG Micro Optics Singapore from Singapore.
To accomplish that, Sandia is looking at integrating a range of capabilities, in areas such as microoptics
, microlasers, and separation technology.
Because this etching process can be done on a microscopic scale, one of its most promising applications is in microoptics
, for creating large arrays consisting of thousands of tiny lenses, each as small as a micron in diameter.
The internationally renowned authors present different methods of lithographic and nonlithographic fabrication of microoptics
and introduce the characterization and testing of microoptics
The lithography equipment to be installed at CNF includes two specialized mask aligner toolsets for the SUSS MA/BA6 aligner: Substrate Conformal Imprinting Lithography (SCIL), a technology developed by SUSS MicroTec in conjunction with Philips Research, that provides an inexpensive means of defining features of 10nm or less with high reproducibility by using a full-size imprint stamp and MO Exposure Optics, a patented technique developed by SUSS MicroTec's daughter company SUSS MicroOptics
Valeo is just as proud of its BeaMatic and MicroOptics
as Hella is of its VarioX and Light Curtain, for example; both techniques are used to create variable headlight beam distributions and radically designed, high-performance LED tail lamps, respectively, though the two makers' techniques and their visual results are quite different.
