We focus on five social themes.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
On our TNOTIME platform you can find blogs, interviews and background stories. Discover the field of TNO captured in photographs, animations, video and text. Share interesting articles and powerful infographics, or download whitepapers.
Current state of the art 3D lithography is performed by 2 photon polymerisation, but the resolution of this technique is still limited to 70% of the classical diffraction limit. With STED lithography the ultimate resolution depends on the parasitic exposure effect of the ‘depletion beam’ that increases when the resolution will be improved. In literature resolutions down to 1/5 of the diffraction limit have been reported.
Production of 3D photonic metamaterials that can work in the visible wavelengths, Production of 3D micro-structured scaffolds for cell growth, Production of Nanofluidic structures.
In literature a 3D resolution down to 52 × 52 × 100 nm has been reported, with a writing speed of 160 µm/s.
3D resolution of 100 × 100 × 100 nm with a writing speed of 1 mm/s.
