World's first 3D volumetric circuit

World's first 3D volumetric circuit

Research on the 3D/volumetric circuit technology was borne out of the notion that a three-dimensional circuit offers more freedom to make circuits smaller, lighter and more efficient. 3D printing allows them to be manufactured into arbitrary form factors that can be integrated into any object or surface.

Supersizing solar cells: researchers print module six times bigger

Supersizing solar cells: researchers print module six times bigger

A perovskite solar module the size of an A4 sheet of paper, which is nearly six times bigger than 10x10 cm2 modules of that type reported before, has been developed by researchers, by using simple and low-cost printing techniques.

Printing with sound

Harvard University researchers have developed a new printing method that uses sound waves to generate droplets from liquids with an unprecedented range of composition and viscosity. This technique could finally enable the manufacturing of many new biopharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food and expand the possibilities of optical and conductive materials.

3D printing the next generation of batteries

3D printing the next generation of batteries

Additive manufacturing can be used to manufacture porous electrodes for lithium-ion batteries--but because of the nature of the manufacturing process, the design of these 3-D printed electrodes is limited to just a few possible architectures.

Directed Energy Deposition to be 10x faster and 5x less expensive

Directed Energy Deposition to be 10x faster and 5x less expensive

Optomec Report shows directed energy deposition to be 10x faster and 5x less expensive than power bed fusion for building mid-size metal parts.

Stretchable hydrogels for high resolution multimaterial 3D printing

Stretchable hydrogels for high resolution multimaterial 3D printing

Hydrogels, hydrophilic networks of polymeric chains capable of retaining a large amount of water, have been widely used in a variety of applications. Recent advances in highly stretchable hydrogels have extended their applications into the fields of soft robotics, transparent touch panels and other applications requiring large deformation.
