June 1: Nanoscribe Talks Aligned 3D Printing on Optical Fibers

At 10 am EST (5 pm CEST) on Thursday, June 1st, Nanoscribe will hold a webinar on “Aligned 3D printing on optical fibers,” with a focus on miniaturized optics and efficient interconnects for photonics packaging. Technology experts from Nanoscribe, Printoptix, and PHIX Photonics Assembly will discuss how to use optical fibers for imaging and sensing applications, and efficient optical interconnects for photonic integration. Attendees will learn about Nanoscribe’s Aligned 2-Photon Lithography (A2PL®) technology, see a live demo of Quantum X align, hear new applications with miniaturized optics, learn how microoptics can be printed directly onto optical fibers, and more.

“Explore the world of fiber-based microoptics and learn about the technical challenges to be tackled. Discover the new opportunities opened up with Quantum X align equipped with A2PL technology. Experience the complete printing workflow, including the detection of the exact position of defined substrates such as optical fibers, to then optimally place the microoptics and automatically compensate for even minimal substrate tilts in the printing process, all the way to the final print result in a live webinar demo. And finally, learn about technologies, novel approaches such as aligned 3D printing, and innovative applications for miniaturized fiber-based optics and photonics packaging.”
