Caltech nanoscale 3D printing produces smallest metallic objects yet

3D printed objects smaller than a human hair, and invisible to the naked eye are commonly produced using a process called two-photon lithography. This method has been used to develop innovative medical treatments, security features, and even castles on the tip of a pencil. In a new technique developed by the Greer Group at California […]

World’s smallest 3D printed fidget spinner opens doors to ORNL

The world’s smallest fidget spinner is invisible to the naked eye, and could fit easily in the width of a human hair. It was made by researchers at the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee. Though a novel application, the ability to 3D print at such a […]

Korean Researcher Proposes 3D Printing for Nanofabrication

(Langmuir) 3D printing in nanofabrication could make processes cheaper, faster and reduce waste. Armed with pre-patterned substrates and 3D printing technology, researchers may be able to realize new complexity in nanoscale 3D fabrication. The most recent development in 3D printing on the nano-scale comes from a team led by Ho-Young Kim, a professor at Seoul National University in South Korea. Although the extreme miniaturization of components in integrated circuits and biochemical chips has driven the development of various nanofabrication technologies, the 3D fabrication of nanoscale objects is still in its infancy.
