No midichlorians here, this Baby Yoda gets its glow from Rhodamine B, a fluorescent dye. Vittorio Saggiomo of Wageningen University embedded the dye in a UV-curable polymer material and then used it in a 3-D printer to create this homage to the popular Star Wars character. Saggiomo’s research centers on manipulating the chemistry, materials science, and geometry of 3-D printed objects.
