“From an industrial point of view, our collaboration with B-Phot is interesting, because they have no problem meeting deadlines..."

Polymer prototyping and replication

Since 1996, B-PHOT has been developing an in-house rapid prototyping technology called deep proton writing . In the past years, B-PHOT has invested strongly in world-unique nanometer-precise prototyping and replication technologies for polymer photonic components thanks to the Flemish Hercules Foundation. Our technology portfolio currently comprises ultraprecision diamond tooling , hot embossing , laser welding , 3D laser lithography , in addition to deep proton writing .

This technology platform provides fabrication services to B-PHOT’s strategic research teams, to other VUB research teams, to European research institutes and university teams, and to industry.
