Bubble Printing: Texas Researchers Develop New 3D Printing-like Method to Fabricate Quantum Dots

Semiconductor quantum dots are used in a number of applications, including light-emitting devices, displays and sensors, thanks to their properties of tunable fluorescence wavelength, narrow bandwidth and high brightness. Most of those applications require the dots to be very precisely patterned with targeted properties on solid substrates. Unfortunately, typical direct-write printing methods such as inkjet […]

TPE TopCon: A Look at 16 Top 3D Printing Stories of 2016

Yesterday in Akron, Ohio was the 12th TPE TopCon event, a conference dedicated to thermoplastics hosted by the Akron Section of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) and the TPE Special Interest Group (SIG) of the SPE. This edition of TPE TopCon was called “Stretching the Performance with TPE’s” as the SPE sought to emphasize the ‘stretch’ […]

University Researchers Create 3D Printed Micro-Needle, Pain-Free, Inserted Internally

Just the thought of a long, thin needle loaded with chemicals coming at us in the doctor’s office invokes anxiety in most. While the pain is rarely that severe, no one likes the invasion of having a shot or intravenous treatment, even when it’s preceded by, “Now this will just hurt for a second.” As […]

Researchers Use DNA as 'Smart Glue' to Provide Structure for 3D Bio-Printing

The abilities of 3D printing to create bio-materials is on the cutting edge of science, but has been somewhat limited to date by technicalities like massive expenses and the fact that 3D printing using microscale materials would lead to microscale products. These factors have so far severely limited the potential for applications including 3D printing […]
