Cutting the Cost of Micro- and Nanomanufacturing
A drawing programme and a 3D printer: before long, that could be all it will take to produce the micro- and nanostructures required for the millions of devices and sensors of the future. With a new manufacturing technology, researchers at KTH Microsystem Technology hope to bring mass innovation capabilities to smaller companies and markets — just as affordable computers have dramatically increased innovation in information technology.
Breakthrough for lab-on-a-chip material
Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology have developed a new polymer suited for photostructuring — a technique for creating micro-scale shapes. The discovery opens new possibilities for medical diagnostics, biophotonics and 3D printing.
Material enables more reliable and meaningful self-screening
Paper-based diagnostics enable rapid medical test results at minimal cost — and now they're about to get even better. A new synthetic paper developed by KTH researchers could enable simultaneous screenings for multiple conditions, with more reliable results.
