FABulous will develop an industrial direct laser writing technology (multiphoton lithography)

to structure coatings with nanoscale engineered 3d topography to fabricate high resolution functional 3D metasurfaces for advanced ultra-lightweight products.

These metasurfaces will be capable of manipulating light with unprecedented flexibility and will open the possibility of designing and manufacturing smaller, lighter, and more environmentally friendly products, through the replacement of bulky components and/or the chemical coatings currently used to enhance the efficiency and performance of optical products in applications such as the design and fabrication of sensors, automotive day time running lights (DRL) and solar power generators.



This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 101091644.


There is no universally scalable manufacturing methods to produce 3D metasurfaces on real products.

FABulous will develop and demonstrate a manufacturing process that enables industrial scale design and manufacturing of functional 3D metasurfaces through direct laser writing and demonstrate its unique capacity on optical products with novel functions.
