New Multi-Material 3D Nanoprinting Strategy Could Revolutionize Optics, Photonics and Biomedicine
Engineers at the University of Maryland (UMD) have created a new multi-material 3D nanoprinting technique that was featured on the inside front cover of the July 21 issue of Lab on a Chip. The team’s new technique – capable of printing tiny multi-material structures a fraction of the size of a human hair – offers researchers a faster, cheaper, and more accurate means to 3D print these highly complex structures because the process uses a very simple molding process that is widely used in most microfluidics labs.
