  • Three-dimensional direct writing of novel sol-gel composites for photonics applications

    Two-photon polymerisation of photosensitive materials has emerged as a very promising technique for the fabrication of photonic crystals and devices. In this paper we present our investigations into the structuring by two-photon polymerisation of a new class of photosensitive sol-gel composites exhibiting ultra-low shrinkage. We particularly focus on two composites, the first containing a ...
