Nanoparticle-based ink helps create 3-D printed glass
A new silica-nanoparticle-based ink makes it possible to create intricate glass reaction vessels and optical components with a three-dimensional printer (Nature 2017, DOI: 10.1038/nature22061).
3-D printing has been growing in popularity, but the materials it’s been able to shape have been limited to polymers, ceramics, and metals, says Bastian Rapp, a polymer chemist at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. The method creates elaborately structured . . .
