Novel 3D-Printing on the Nanoscale for Tailored Sensors and Electronics

NanoScale Systems (Nanoss) GmbH, Hessen, Germany

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

nano3DSenseâ„¢ is a novel Bottom-Up approach for rapid prototyping and highly customizable manufacturing of sensors on the nanoscale. A new 3D-Printing method has been invented to apply sensors on arbitrary surfaces and materials, where they are available for a great variety of MEMS/NEMS applications, such as force, strain, pressure sensors.

Primary Application Area: Electronics, Sensors & Communications

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 7

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Current Top-Down technologies reach their limitations in miniaturization already between 1.4-30 Microns, due to diffraction limits (lasers) or Silicon doping (piezoresistors). Our worldwide patented technology is a maskless and Silicon free 3D-Printing process which overcomes these natural barriers many times by providing tailor-made sensors down to 10 nanometers in size.
