Check out the latest news and events featuring Digital Light Innovations (DLi) the World Leader In DLP® Light Exploration.
The Prism Awards are presented every year at SPIE Photonics West. This annual competition, created by SPIE and their media partner Photonics Media, celebrates both companies and individuals who have contributed to the optics and photonics industry through innovative products that make a difference. The 2022 competition was a tough race, but we wanted to …
2021 had its highs and lows, but the TyRex Technology Family ultimately proved that it is a company that is Built to Last as we persevered and thrived throughout the year. We had a lot of great moments in 2021, so it’s time to take a look back at our accomplishments as we prepare for …
Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the direct-write lithography techniques, dip-pen nanolithography (DPN) and polymer pen lithography (PPL), the Mirkin group proposed a more cost-effective and advanced control nanofabrication technique using light.
“DLP projection provides a robust method to quickly and easily produce patterns of bright actinic light.”
As we work our way towards breaking down the structured light-based beam pen lithography (BPL) technique, we have to first look at the direct-write innovation that came just before it. Invented by the Mirkin group in 2008, polymer pen lithography (PPL) took the dip-pen nanolithography (DPN) technique to the next level in nanofabrication.
While Dip-Pen Nanolithography (DPN) is not a structured light application, it is important to take a look at the foundation of nanolithography and how this technology pioneered the path towards Beam Pen Lithography (BPL).
