3D fabrication technique uses light-activated molecules

Abstract:
A three-dimensional microfabrication technique that uses a unique class of light-activated molecules to selectively initiate chemical reactions within polymers and other materials could provide an efficient way to produce complex structures with sub-micron features. Known as "two-photon 3D lithography," the technique could compete with existing processes for fabricating microfluidic devices, photonic bandgap structures, optical storage devices, photonic switches and couplers, sensors, actuators, micromachines - and even scaffolds for growing living tissue.
