  • Scientists from the University of Stuttgart built their three-lens camera using a new 3D printing technique.
  • Researchers printed imaging components for optical microscopes with a diameter and height of 125 micrometers, and then attached them to the end of an optical fiber the width of two human hairs (Credit: University of Stuttgart, 4th Physics Institute) View gallery (7 images)

  • The camera on the end of this small endoscope is capable of focusing on images from a distance of 3 mm (0.12 in).
  • The team used the approach to print imaging components for optical microscopes with a diameter and height of 125 micrometers, and then attached them to the end of a 5.6-ft (1.7-m) optical fiber the width of two human hairs.
