In 2013 Jochen Zimmer finished his doctorate at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in the subject of superconducting nanostructures. Zimmer previously worked in the 3D printing industry (for INDMATEC GmbH, Stratasys GmbH/MakerBot Division) and since 2017 with Nanoscribe GmbH.
Two-photon-polymerization can be used for the direct printing of complex micro- and mesoscale 3D parts. These parts can be transparent, have optical-quality surfaces, and be printed on pre-structured surfaces. We will present recent results from internal and publicly funded projects that apply this technology to facilitate optical packaging.
