Micro/nanoscale additive manufacturing provides a powerful tool for advanced materials and structures with complex and precise features. For instance, the feature resolution of two-photon polymerization (2PP) can reach 200 nm. At this scale, materials properties can change, and the influence of the size effect cannot be ignored. Therefore, it...

The first mission proposals to visit the Alpha Centauri system use photon-sail acceleration as a mode of propulsion to reach this stellar system closest to our own Solar System. To prepare for a future mission, the photon-sail dynamics in the system is investigated. Planar Lyapunov orbits around the colinear classical Lagrange points are...

From the research in the field of mechanobiology, it is evident that cells exert different force magnitudes while growing based on the biomaterial these are in contact with. The magnitude of the exerted force determines certain behaviors and mechansims of the cells, such as differentiation. For this reason, it is proposed to develop a...

Nanoparticles are ultrafine particulate matter having considerable potential for treatment of central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Despite their tiny size, the blood-brain barrier (BBB) restricts their access to the CNS. Their direct cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) administration bypasses the BBB endothelium, but still fails to give adequate...

The mechanical properties of two-photon-polymerised (2PP) polymers are highly dependent on the employed printing parameters. In particular, the mechanical features of elastomeric polymers, such as IP-PDMS, are important for cell culture studies as they can influence cell mechanobiological responses. Herein, we employed optical-interferometer...
