Nanotechnology Department

  • Nano structuring, nanolithographie and nanophotonics

  • Production and application of nanomaterials

  • Additive manufacturing processes at the nanoscale


The Nanotechnology Department focuses on nanostructuring, nanolithography and nanophotonics, as well as on the production and application of nanomaterials. In addition, the department works on additive manufacturing processes at the nanoscale. These include, for example, Two-Photon-Polymerization (2PP), laser-assisted cell printing, fabrication of artificial tissue or the manufacturing of nanostructured implants. The latter are being investigated within the scope of the Hannover-based excellence cluster REBIRTH.

Moreover, the Nanotechnology Department offers a commercially available and compact 2PP system for the manufacturing of 3D micro and nanostructures that is being continuously further developed. With this system, the user can quickly and easily manufacture any complex 3D nanostructure. Further, the department manufactures customer-specific micro and nanostructures with a resolution of up to 200 nm as well as nanoparticles and nanomaterials.
