 Switzerland Advances in Mixing Laser Tech and 3D Printing for Tissue Repair

Researchers at EPFL in Switzerland have developed 3D printed microstructures with a 1.0 micron lateral and 21.5-micron axial printing resolution by detailing their approach towards existing laser-based microfabrication techniques which uses two-photon photopolymerization. The research team is now working toward clinical use for their technique while developing biocompatible photopolymers and a compact delivery system.
