3dLawrence Livermore unlocks 3D printing to smaller than 150 nanometer features

No Comments
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers have discovered novel ways to extend the capabilities of two-photon lithography (TPL), a high-resolution 3D printing technique capable of producing nanoscale features smaller than one-hundredth the width of a human hair. The findings unleashes …
