Sound and lightwaves manipulated with 3D printed Weyl Sonic Crystal

Physicists from the University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) and China’s Wuhan University have 3D printed polymer rectangular rods to create a Weyl sonic crystal cube capable of reflecting sound. A Weyl sonic crystal is considered a quantum material and acts as an acoustic analogue. Similar to graphene, electrons found on the surface of Weyl particles […]

CfAM publishes breakthrough Multifunctional AM method for electronics

Multifunctional Additive Manufacturing (MFAM) champions the development of single step 3D printing using multiple materials. Due to its nature, MFAM is ideally suited to the fabrication of electronic components, as they typically require step by step assembly of conductive and non-conductive parts. Researchers at the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) are leading […]
