Direct Laser Writing of Nanosized Oligofluorene Truxenes in UV-Transparent Photoresist Microstructures



original image

Recently developed star-shaped nanosized oligofluorene truxenes are dispersed in a novel vinyl ether based photoresist to produce microstructures via direct laser writing. The technique offers rapid and facile production of nanostructures whithin a microstructure, and ensures environmental protection from photo-oxidation of the fluorescent molecules.
