High resolution volumetric lithography of complex 3D polymeric and biomaterial structures

Master projects/internships - Leuven | More than two weeks ago

With the imec team and university collaborators, the student explores, selects, designs, builds, and tests workable imec-based solutions for bioprinting and printing biophotonics using projection imaging and holography fused with super-resolution imaging chemistry.

Enabling a new generation of high resolution, high throughput 3D-fabrication techniques we (imec) want to fix that and usher in a new age of microfluidic devices, bioinspired photonics, batteries, catalysts, and bioprinting. For the latter, we are developing rapid 3D-printing method to produce organelles for rapid drug discovery, rapid tissue reconstruction, and replacement organs and is the emphasis of this call.
 
With the imec team and university collaborators, the student explores, selects, designs, builds, and tests workable imec-based imaging solutions for bioprinting and biophotonics using projection imaging and holography fused with super-resolution imaging chemistry. At the completion of the master’s student will be a lithographer with multidisciplinary background in lasers, holography, optics, lithographic modelling, photochemistry, and lithography patterning technology and science.
