Researchers Jan Torgersen and Peter Gruber at Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) have successfully printed intricately detailed models of various objects at the nanometer scale using a process called “two-photon lithography”. In the process, they also managed to speed things up a bit and have gone from printing in millimeters per second to meters per second.

With such a fine print resolution, the group hopes to develop bio-compatible resin capable of generating scaffolds for medical use. [via geek.com]

    Astonishing!

    It would seem the smaller the print, the bigger the printer.

    I like their apparatus for the critical damping of the system.
