3D nanoprinter makes oxide sculptures

Abstract:
Jennifer Lewis, professor of materials science and engineering at Illinois and co-author of the paper, says the team has made features as small as 225 nm. 'Our technique offers unparalleled resolution for 3D patterning of oxide structures,' Lewis told Chemistry World. 'This opens up a new avenue to printed photonic, electronic and energy materials.'

Commenting on the work, Mark Welland, director of the Cambridge Nanoscience Centre, told Chemistry World, 'Scalability has been the bugbear of nanotechnology for a long time. Useable, economically viable manufacturing processes are an issue ... [inkjet printing] has the advantages of being very cheap, relatively fast and easy to build up layers.'
