Satoshi Kawata plenary presentation: Optical 3D Nano-fabrication: Drawing or Growing?

Presented at SPIE Photonics West 2016

29 February 2016, SPIE Newsroom. DOI: 10.1117/2.3201602.11

Satoshi Kawata, Osaka Univ. (Japan) and RIKEN (Japan)

Conventional nanotechnology based on the lithography and scanning probe microscopy is limited to 2D fabrication and modification. In this plenary session, Satoshi Kawata of RIKEN talks about the method for 3D laser fabrication with two-photon polymerization, two-photon isomerization, and two-photon photo-reduction. Self-growth technology, such as self-grown fiber tructures of polymer and self-grown metallic fractal metamaterials structures are also discussed.

Satoshi Kawata is a distinguished professor of Osaka University and an honorary scientist at RIKEN. He serves as the President of Japan Society of Applied Physics and as a General Chair of Nano Science and Engineering for SPIE. His research topics includes near field optics, plasmonics,
laser trapping, and two-photon nano-engineering. He is a fellow of OSA, SPIE, IOP, and JSAP.
