Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is used as a transparent conducting oxide film in electronics, displays, windows and other devices. A highly reproducible and scalable process for making an ITO alternative that is highly transparent and has superior conductivity has been developed.
Researchers in Dr. Yunzhi Peter Yang’s lab have developed a 3D printing technology that can be used to form hybrid multi-material constructs incorporating a wide spectrum of materials (rigid and soft) and bioagents (such as cells and growth factors) with controlled spatial distribution across the hybrid structure.
This technology is a multi-layered metamaterial-based “skin” that includes an array of liquid metal split ring resonators embedded in a stretchable elastomer, which can be used to benefit many electromagnetic applications.
This technology provides on-demand thermal curing of polymer systems using nanoscale materials to efficiently convert light to heat. The conversion results in extreme temperatures near the nanoscale materials, which greatly enhances the rate of polymerization, achieving billion-fold enhancements of polymerization rates while preserving desired chemical control over the final products.
