Photonic Nanojet: a promising fabrication tool for producing functionalized surfaces

By |2020-01-22T08:59:54+01:00janvier 22nd, 2020|

Photonic Nanojet: a promising fabrication tool for producing functionalized surfaces   Photonic nanojet is a maskless subwavelength-resolution direct write nanopatterning tool combining several physical phenomena at subwavelength scale. CEA’s team focuses on the fabrication and characterization of smart surfaces associating periodic structures and nanoparticles growth for catalysis. The Particle self-assembly and photonic nanojet facility is [...]

GF Machining solutions explains laser texturing

By |2019-12-20T16:58:01+01:00décembre 20th, 2019|

Laser texturing of mould inserts is one of the major subjects of Himalaia project. Indeed, adding functionalities to plastic surfaces starts with the design and the realization of mould steel 3D walls engraving. The complexity and expected quality need specific processing that is shown in the above video. Special thanks to GFMS guys https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2axwhhfBlg
