The Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) has placed an order for a Multiphoton Optics MPO 100 printer. Multiphoton Optics was awarded the contract shortly before the official market launch of the new multi-user laser direct writer, which is based on Two-Photon Polymerization (TPP), and is produced by parent company Heidelberg Instruments Mikrotechnik GmbH. The MPO 100 will be used in the field of packaging and integrated optics at the Technology Campus (TC) Teisnach Sensor Technology of the DIT.

When procuring the new system, DIT focused on a high resolution – over the largest possible printing range – for the production of diffractive optical elements (DOE) and a wide selection of available photoresists. “The MPO 100 was particularly convincing due to its wide range of applications as well as its high-precision stage and stitching-free structuring. Another major advantage of the system is the integrated flow box,” said Daniel Schäffer, research associate and doctoral student at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology, who was largely responsible for the selection process.

In the field of additive manufacturing, the TC Teisnach Sensor Technology with the MPO 100 is now taking a step from the micrometer, to the nanometer world – thus profitably expanding the range of high-tech special solutions for existing, and new, cooperation partners from industry companies. The TC Teisnach Sensor Technology bundles the know-how of DIT in the areas of packaging and advanced materials, integrated optics, and safe digitization. The expertise range from micromachining of complex components to functional sensor coatings and material analysis. The MPO 100 will be used, in particular, for the structuring of integrated optical components, such as miniaturized spectrometers and beam-shaping optics on fiber optics, as well as for the use of ORMOCERs for robust, function-integrated sensor housings in the field of packaging and advanced materials.

“The Deggendorf Institute of Technology can look back on a long success story and conducts research on future-oriented topics at the TC Teisnach Sensor Technology. We are pleased that one of the first orders for the MPO 100 has come from Germany and that we can contribute to novel sensor concepts with our product,” said Benedikt Stender, Managing Director of Multiphoton Optics GmbH.
