3D Printed Novel Biomaterial Mimics Properties of Living Tissues

3D Printed Novel Biomaterial Mimics Properties of Living Tissues

Imagine if surgeons could transplant healthy neurons into patients living with neurodegenerative diseases or brain and spinal cord injuries. And imagine if they could "grow" these neurons in the laboratory from a patient's own cells using a synthetic, highly bioactive material that is suitable for 3D printing.

6G Communications Needs Vast Areas of Printed Electronics

6G Communications Needs Vast Areas of Printed Electronics

There is a near consensus that today's 5G communications and even its planned enhancement called Beyond 5G, i.e. B5G, will not meet the burgeoning requirements of industry, healthcare, aerospace, smart cities or even home entertainment. They need the services promised by 6G communications, though that has no specifications, roadmap or even frequency decided as yet.

CVD Graphene for Electronic Applications: 2021 Status and Outlook

CVD Graphene for Electronic Applications: 2021 Status and Outlook

Given the exciting properties, graphene has always been linked as a revolutionary material for the electronics industry. CVD graphene is cited as the ideal solution in providing a perfect single layer produced in a low cost continuous R2R process, but the manufacturing and commercial reality have proved very different. After a long period of research, and with players regularly exiting and entering the field, we are only now starting to see this technology mature and the dawn of the commercial reality.

Dishing up 3D Printed Food, One Tasty Printout at a Time

Dishing up 3D Printed Food, One Tasty Printout at a Time

Researchers have developed a new way to create "food inks" from fresh and frozen vegetables, that preserves their nutrition and flavour better than existing methods. Food inks are usually made from pureed foods in liquid or semi-solid form, then 3D-printed by extrusion from a nozzle, and assembled layer by layer.

3D Printing Resins in Dental Devices Toxic to Reproductive Health?

Two commercially available 3D-printable resins, which are marketed as being biocompatible for use in dental applications, readily leach compounds into their surroundings. These compounds can induce severe toxicity in the oocyte, the immature precursor of the egg which can eventually be fertilized, reports a new study in mouse oocytes.
