Nanoscribe Quantum X overview

Nanoscribe Quantum X is the first Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography (2GL ®) system and advances maskless microfabrication in the field of microoptics and functional surfaces. Nanoscribe’s Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography combines Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP) with the qualities of grayscale lithography to enable fast and precise microfabrication of ultra-smooth surfaces and structures with excellent shape accuracy. 

Thus, Nanoscribe Quantum X redefines the fabrication of topographies with optical-quality surfaces, for freeform microoptics, microlens arrays and multi-level diffractive optical elements (DOEs). 2D and 2.5D optical elements such as Fresnel lenses for focused illumination or hybrid microoptics, which are a mixture of refractive and diffractive elements, can be manufactured in one single fabrication step.

Nanoscribe Quantum X: key features

  • High-speed 2.5D microfabrication
  • Ultra-smooth surfaces and excellent shape accuracy
  • Design freedom with submicrometer resolution
  • Automated processes, e.g., calibration, job execution, and monitoring

Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography (2GL ®) features a dynamic size control over voxels. This is a product of the synchronization of laser power modulation and high-speed galvoscanning with precise lateral stage motion. It enables precise voxel size variation at high scan speeds.

For example, the modulation control of high-resolution print is set to a 100 nm galvoscanner grid. The voxel can be modulated by more than 4,000 levels at each grid point in three-dimensional space, resulting in excellent control of surface topography. Quantum X software controls and monitors print jobs in real time and supports intuitive operation through an interactive touchscreen control panel or from any connected computer.
