3D laser microfabrication

MIMENTO centre has created a dedicated zone for innovative femtosecond laser-based micromachining processes in order to open up new possibilities for fabrication of various three-dimensional (3D) microstructures in photosensitive polymers (Nanoscribe system) as well as in hard glass-type materials (FEMTOprint system).

  • Nanoscribe Photonic Professional GT+ is a high-resolution 3D micro-printer designed for ultra-precise and rapid prototyping for a broad range of print materials (polymers) and substrates. It uses Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP) to produce very complex and unique 3D devices for many applications and eases microfabrication from the sub-micrometer range to millimeter-scale dimensions.

  • FEMTOprint system implements a new generation laser microfabrication technology for precise and rapid 3D patterning of glass materials using femtosecond laser-assisted wet etching (FLAE) method. The FLAE is a powerful mask-free subtractive method, allowing chip-level or wafer-level micromachining of surface and buried micro-structures with high spatial resolution (µm range). The overall FLAE fabrication process is composed of three main steps: 1) design of laser-machining process by use of dedicated software ALPHACAM, 2) direct laser writing of the pattern into the substrate, c) wet etching in KOH or HF etchant for structure releasing.
