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 […]

Northwestern’s 3D printer auto generates designs for future Wi-Fi

How can 3D printing give you faster internet? Form-fitting health trackers for sneakers? Or even an invisibility cloak? Scientists in photonics (the study of light) have been working on projects touching these ideas for some time. At the base level, such products rely on the manipulation of light, through waveguides designed to channel/block specific wavelengths. […]
