  • Highly precise 3D structures in black can now be printed using a 2 Photon-Polymerization (2PP) 3D printing process. This seemed for a long time impossible as non-transmissive (black) materials greatly reduce the polymerization efficiency of the printing process. Now the 2PP-specialist UpNano (Vienna, Austria) succeeded in developing such material benefiting from…
