3D-printing and Additive Manufacturing Technologies (AMT)
We are a team of mechanical engineers, materials scientists and chemists, headed by Prof. Liska and Prof. Stampfl. Our goal is to do research in the field of lithography-based Additive Manufacturing Technologies (3D-printing). Although our focus is on materials, we aim at covering the complete process chain from initiators over thermosetting polymers to system design and development and thermomechanical characterization of the obtained parts and materials.
More details about our work on multiphoton lithography can be found in a recently published book.
Education and Research
One key topic of research is related to using 3D-printing in the context of digital dentistry. The AMT-team at TU Wien is thus closely related to the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Photopolymers in digital and restorative dentistry. In addition, ground-breaking basic research is performed within the ERC starting grant LeBMEC.
