Groundbreaking Way to Additively Print Gallium Nitride

Groundbreaking Way to Additively Print Gallium Nitride

The rise of additive manufacturing - or as it's more commonly known, 3D printing - has enabled the rapid production of complex parts across many domains. As the techniques have become more refined, the semiconductor industry has taken note. But until recently, no one's been able to form single-crystal materials - the building block of semiconductors - with traditional additive manufacturing processes.

Glass From a 3D Printer

Glass From a 3D Printer

Producing glass objects using 3D printing is not easy. Only a few groups of researchers around the world have attempted to produce glass using additive methods. Some have made objects by printing molten glass, but the disadvantage is that this requires extremely high temperatures and heat-​resistant equipment.
