3D Printing of Conductive Metallic Inks Could Lead to Customized Electronics, Biomedical Devices

3D Printing of Conductive Metallic Inks Could Lead to Customized Electronics, Biomedical Devices

“Flat” and “rigid” are terms that are traditionally used to explain electronic devices. However, the rise in demand for wearable and flexible electronics, antennas, biomedical devices, and sensors has led a group of researchers at Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering to invent a novel way of printing intricate metallic architectures – as if they are suspended in midair.
