What is Two-Photon Lithography System?
The Two-Photon Lithography system functions primarily as a projection system. Light is projected through a blueprint of the pattern to be printed (referred to as a mask or reticle). The blueprint is four times larger than the chip's intended pattern. The simultaneous absorption of two photons in photosensitive material results in two-photon polymerization, a non-linear optical process (photoresist). This process alters the photosensitive material, causing polymerization by activating photo-initiators in the resist. The photonic crystal community has long been aware of the two-photon lithography system (also known as direct laser lithography or direct laser writing) of polymer templates. Structuring, like standard photolithography techniques, is accomplished by illuminating negative-tone or positive-tone photoresists with the light of a specific wavelength. The primary distinction is the avoidance of reticles. Instead, two-photon absorption is used to cause a significant change in the solubility of the resist for suitable developers.

On 21st May 2021, CELLINK, a Swedish 3D bioprinter manufacturer, has announced the acquisition of Nanoscribe, a Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP) 3D printer manufacturer. CELLINK is set to take full control of Nanoscribe through the deal, which is worth USD50 million in cash, shares, and earn-outs while integrating 2PP technology into its own to enable the fabrication of more lifelike soft tissues. Using its new miniaturization capabilities, the company expects to reduce lead times and costs across its product portfolio, as well as expand its offering of consumables.
Mechanical changes in SF hydrogel were caused by varying the intensity of the two-photon laser used during 2 PL printing, as well as the cytocompatibility of the 2 PL process and the gels formed Increased laser intensity in the patterned area resulted in a higher localized cross-link density, which was directly proportional to a lower rate of enzymatic degradation during in vitro tests and increased material stiffness.
