FEMTOPRINT® is a 3D printing technology that uses light as a powerful ink source. The beam, focused inside glass, locally modifies the refractive index and density of the material. Depending on exposure parameters, waveguides can be formed to realize complex integrated optical components or three-dimensional structures with additional chemical etching. All of these features are possible with high complexity, precision, and aspect ratio.
FEMTOPRINT® is the sole 3D microfabrication platform capable of material structuring using arbitrary patterns to produce challenging, monolithic 3D shapes in glass with high precision, sub-micron resolution, and with an additional polishing step, optical surface quality.

Mr Guillaume Tourrel
Advanced Studies Manager, Oticon Medical, France
FEMTOprint provide us an incredible quality of work. In a one shoot try, the component was much better than other known technics. Finding a such partner will enable us to develop more accurate and realistic models for the design of our future devices.
Mr Stéphane von Gunten
Responsable Laboratoire & Technologies, Ulysse Nardin SA, Switzerland
It is an enormous pleasure to work in collaboration with all the team of FEMTOprint. They take all the challenges we give to them for the fabrication of high complex 3D microstructures made out of glass. These horological microparts could not be done with others technologies with such a high degree of accuracy (which is about 2 to 5 µm). Little channels of about 0.4mm or microtexts are also included into the material.
Dr. Comtet Louis
Andriamanampisoia. Mechanical Engineer, Picometrics Technologies, France
FEMTOprint worked closely with Picometrics Technologies in order to manufacture microfluidic parts for our projects. They enabled us to have complex glass products, with very tight dimensions and not feasible by other companies.
FEMTOprint is a Swiss high-tech company dedicated to contract manufacturing of 3D printed microdevices in glass and other transparent materials, as well as development and assembly of 3D micromachining platforms for rapid prototyping and industrial serial production.
Through the innovative, award-winning FEMTOPRINT® process, we are changing the way complex industrial microsystems are designed, manufactured, and used.
The FEMTOPRINT® platform enables the creation of a large variety of 3D microdevices in many different application fields, such as optics and photonics, micro- and opto-mechanics, micro- and opto-fluidics, micromoulding, electronics, and 5D high-density memory.
