On the research image of the year shortlist: A 3D printed miniature model of Trinity College’s iconic Campanile shown in front of a housefly (Musca domestica). The model is only 2mm tall. It was fabricated using 3D two-photon lithography in AMBER’s new Additive Research Laboratory, where a unique suite of cutting edge Additive Manufacturing tools - 3D printers - are used in cross platform projects including energy storage systems, opto-electronics and medical devices.
