Research Highlights

  • Revelation of photo-excitation mechanisms in ultrafast laser 3D nanolithography and its applications for precision micro-structuring out of non-photosensitized resins.
  • Creation of integrated and multi-functional 3D micro-optical devices.
  • Laser induced damage threshold (LIDT) determination for laser made polymer micro-optical and nano-photonic components.
  • Fabrication and characterization of 3D microporous biocompatible (and biodegradable) scaffolds for in vitro and implants for in vivo applications.
  • Additive manufacturing of glass/ceramics at nanoscale via laser 3D lithography and thermal post-treatment.
  • Plant-based renewable bioresins for the next generation optical 3D printing of sustainable materials
