UW Washington Nanofabrication Facility introduces higher resolution 3D printer

The Washington Nanofabrication Facility is excited to offer users access to the Nanoscribe 3D Printer, a cutting-edge lithography system that produces unique 3D structures with 500nm resolution. This two-photon laser writer allows for additive manufacturing and maskless lithography within the same device. Its high printing resolution gives users greater design freedom when creating very small, complex parts with intricate features. Moreover, the Nanoscribe uses a simple workflow to rapidly fabricate micro-sized parts from virtual 3D models.

Making humanity’s challenges smaller and smaller: UW launches Institute for Nano-Engineered Systems

The University of Washington has launched a new institute aimed at accelerating research at the nanoscale: the Institute for Nano-Engineered Systems, or NanoES. Housed in a new, multimillion-dollar facility on the UW’s Seattle campus, the institute will pursue impactful advancements in a variety of disciplines — including energy, materials science, computation and medicine.
