FIRST IN PHOTONICS
The µFab3D microfabrication system from TEEM Photonics is a novel laser accessory for microscopes which enables the fabrication of 3D polymer, protein, metal or other biomaterials microstructures.
The µFab3D is a three dimensional (3D) microfabrication system using two photon absorption (TPA) from a 532nm microchip laser to build micro objects in polymer, proteins or noble metals with confocal microscopy resolution. These microscopic structures are realised as a result of a high definition photochemical process initiated at the focal point of a laser and resolution (voxel size) down to 200nm is achievable.
One of the key features of this system is the bespoke software which offers a powerful 2D slicing method to provide much faster and more efficient fabrication.
The system consists of a laser module, sample module, 3D microfabrication software, a starting kit and inverted microscope.
The laser is a 532nm microlaser which is adapted to the microscope aperture and modulated with an acousto-optic modulator. 1064 or 532nm laser wavelengths are available at up to 40kHz repetition rate and 0.5ns pulse duration. The sample module offers piezo-electric nano-positioning capabilities of 0-100µm. The 3D microfabrication software is capable of optimising the fabrication of complex shapes imported from standard 3D computer aided design (CAD) files.
