Clearly advancing: Multiple teams develop technologies to 3-D print high-quality, microstructured glass

By April Gocha / May 4, 2017

Two new papers, one published in Nature and one in Advanced Materials, describe 3-D printing techniques that use silica nanoparticle inks—rather than molten glass itself—to to fabricate optically clear glass components with micrometer-scale resolution, a huge leap forward for the integration of glass materials into additive manufacturing.

3-D printing 2-D materials with air—direct ink writing builds graphene aerogels

By April Gocha / May 14, 2015

Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Lab have combined three of the most promising and popular technologies today—3-D printing, graphene, and aerogels. The team is the first to 3-D print graphene aerogels, according to a LLNL press release.
