Stefan Hecht elected as a Fellow of the European Academy of Sciences

The European Academy of Sciences (EURASC) has elected Prof. Stefan Hecht, Ph.D., Director of the DWI - Leibniz-Institute for Interactive Materials, Guestprofessor at the Department of Chemistry of HU Berlin and founding member of IRIS Adlershof, as a Fellow.

"It is a very special honor to be part of this illustrious circle. The election reaffirms both the recognition of our research and its socio-economic benefits," explains Stefan Hecht. In particular, his recent results and successes in the field of 3D printing, more specifically the development of xolography, reflect this achievement. The process is based on the light-induced curing of a transparent high-viscosity resin mixture. However, the curing only occurs at points where two different colors thus wavelengths of light cross. The crossing (X) light rays thereby produce the entire (holos) object in a print (graphy), hence the name "xolography".

The EURASC is dedicated to scientific excellence as well as cutting-edge basic research and interdisciplinary collaboration, which is the basis for all scientific and technological innovation. It is a non-profit and independent association of the most renowned European scientists engaged in cutting-edge research and the development of advanced technologies with more than 770 members in various disciplines, among them Nobel laureates.
