3D Nano-Printing at CUDOS Showcase

Monday November 25 2013

CUDOS, the Australian Research Council Centre for Ultrahigh-bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems recently held its inaugural Photonics Showcase, a day long event where CUDOS researchers and industry collaborators showcase their efforts towards commercialisation.

The Centre for Micro-Photonics, which leads the CUDOS Nanoplasmonics flagship project, coordinated a 3D Nano-Printing booth at the Showcase, which demonstrated CMP & CUDOS' ability to fabricate nano-scale objects with speed and flexibility.

The booth included a live demonstration of 3D Nano-Printing via remote control of a nanofabrication setup back at Swinburne university, and presented a number of 3D printed objects viewable under an optical microscope.

The booth and showcase were well received by attendees from industry through to high school teachers, and helped lift the profile of photonics in Australia.
