Three-dimensional (3D) laser lithography has become a versatile, reliable, and widespread workhorse for fabricating 3D micro- and nanostructures. I will illustrate the current state-of-the-art by selected examples, including free-form micro-optics, 3D optical and other metamaterials, as well as functionalized 3D scaffolds for biological cell culture. I will speculate about near-term industrial applications and outline remaining technological challenges regarding spatial resolution, scalability, and multi-material 3D nano-printing.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
