First successful demonstration of 3D nanostructures by combining metal and polymer
Stanford: Although 3D printers make large objects, now experts have created extremely fine nanoscale designs, but most notably, it incorporates metal into polymer, which was not possible before.
Another important thing is that the printed logo of Stanford University is not only very beautiful but also very solid. It is made very fast. It is specifically designed to protect sensitive components in electronics. It is prepared by mixing metal atoms in a common polymer, which can also be called a ‘nanocluster’.
This nanostructure is etched by two-photon lithography, which is laser-etched onto a thick liquid (in this experiment, a polymer slurry). Metal nanoparticles are placed between the liquid and the liquid hardens where the laser hits. In this way, a desired shape or structure is created by inserting a laser at specific places. More than one polymer is also linked by chemical process and thus the nanostructure becomes very strong and solid. Learn more about Instant Famous.
Scientists have said that this nanostructure should not be considered a showpiece as it can be used in countless medical applications.
