Optical technologies cover a broad range of applications which make use of the generation and the manipulation of light, and they open up a wide field of novel applications when combined with electronics or biologics. Many efforts have been made to develop laser light sources in order to continuously increase their application potential. The interaction of ultra-short laser pulses with polymer or glass materials is of high technological interest. Since the triggered reactions are strongly confined to the focal region, the formation of free-form 3D-printed micro and nano structures can be easily carried out with highest precision.

For biological applications, the appeal of this method is an intrinsic scalability strongly improving the fabrication of, e.g. microfluidic cells, scaffolds for tissue engineering approaches, or drug delivery systems. For the restoration of diseased or damaged tissue the growth of cells on 3D porous scaffolds for tissue engineering (TE) is a promising approach to generate autologous tissue. Scaffold structures should not only have microscopic feature sizes, but also large overall sizes fabricated from biocompatible or biodegradable materials. Appropriate types of functionalization additionally create binding sites for, e.g. biomolecules and/or cells, thus enabling a precise control of cell adhesion, spreading, growth, and differentiation. The scalability of the method ranging from the sub-100 nm regime to the cm range is demonstrated, and the influence of structure type and size has been shown already for primary human microvascular endothelial cells.

Multiphoton Optics under new management

Effective from August 4, 2014, Dr. Ruth Houbertz, has taken over the company’s excecutive responsibility as CEO, after Dr. Markus Riester has resigned as CEO for private reasons. Ruth Houbertz will drive forward the current customer projects and new developments. “I am in good faith that the technology and the products of MPO will allow game-changing developments in optical communication, and I wish Ruth all the best for pursuing this opportunity”, he states. „Markus supported us to move into a good position for starting our business over the last year, and we will continue our roadmap as previously planned”, Houbertz adds.
