Paper Abstract

The photopolymerization in focused laser light is a modern way how to create three-dimensional microstructures with even sub-micron details. We present how this method can be utilized even in very narrow non-diffracting beams. Combination of the self-healing property of these beams and the narrow core of the non-diffracting beam enables the generation of a very uniform fiber of diameter less than 2 micrometers and lengths of several millimeters. Manufacturing conditions and dimensions of the generated fibers are studied.
