An Introduction to Direct Laser Writing (DLW)

1. What is Two-Photon Direct Laser Writing (DLW)? Two-photon direct laser writing (DLW) is 3D printing for the microscopic world. This techniques goes beyond the smallest shapes and sizes that can be accomplished by garden variety 3D printing. The highest  resolution that can be achieved by DLW is typically few micron to sub-micron range. To
