New 2.5D inkjet printing method guides precise medical research

Due to its drop on demand precision, inkjet based 3D printing presents researchers with the stimulating prospect of creating microscopic and complex devices for use in medical and chemical research. Microfluidics and lab on a chip devices, used to study the effects substances and stimuli, are an emerging method cutting down lab space to conduct […]

UCF and UT win $400k for micro 3D printed light-bending research

The University of Central Florida (UCF) and the University of Texas (UT) have won a collaborative research award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Over the course of three years the NSF will provide the project with $400,049. This money will be used for 3D printing photon funnels. As microscopic lattice-like constructs, photon funnels change the […]
