The recently developed two-photon polymerisation technique is used for the fabrication of two- and three-dimensional structures in photosensitive inorganic-organic hybrid material (ORMOCER), in SU8 , and in positive tone resist with resolutions down to 100nm. In this contribution we present applications of this powerful technology for the realization of micromechanical systems and microoptical components. We will demonstrate results on the fabrication of complex movable three-dimensional micromechanical systems and microfluidic components which cannot be realized by other technologies. This approach of structuring photosensitive materials also provides unique possibilities for the fabrication of different microoptical components such as arbitrary shaped microlenses, microprisms, and 3D-photonic crystals with high optical quality.
