Logo Multiphoton Optics GmbH

Multiphoton Optics GmbH offers with its 3D Printing Platform LithoProf3D® a universal tool for the high precision fabrication of structures with a broad degree of freedom in processes and material choices as well as fabrication strategies (machine- and exposure driven), providing highest throughput in prototyping and production phases. Surface parameters can be adjusted by choice with lowest roughness values. Different tasks can be simply executed in one packaging process: optical interconnects can be fabricated next to in-/outcoupling structures such as (freeform) microoptical elements. Monolithically integrated microoptical elements can be serially or parallel produced analogously to (freeform) microlens arrays. The latter can be also used to create masters (Ni shim, polymer mold) to even more upscale the production process for imaging, illumination, and other fields where photonics packaging is required. The modularly built 3D printer platform LithoProf3D® offers nearly no restriction in sample formats and kind of substrates – simple integrable, highly flexible fabrication processes for Production 4.0 with industrial scale throughput, cost savings, and less consumption of resources.
