Today, we had the distinct honor of hosting a special guest at our headquarters in Karlsruhe: Professor Shoji Maruo from Yokohama National University, Japan, stopped by our Microfabrication Experience Center.
In 1997, together with Prof. Satoshi Kawata, he succeeded in experimentally demonstrating Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP) for the very first time. As it turned out, their groundbreaking work in Two-Photon Polymerization became the foundation for countless innovations, scientific breakthroughs, and real-world applications in additive microfabrication.
In our Demolab, 25 years after his scientific breakthrough, he Prof. Maruo personally experienced the entire cutting-edge workflow and operated a Quantum X system to understand the user experience of the next generation microfabrication.
It was a moving and exciting moment when Prof. Shoji Maruo himself, 25 years after his groundbreaking invention, visited us to witness the evolution of his work. We had the privilege of sharing the state of the art in the world he set in motion with him, a thrilling moment for us.
