ESR 15: Development and optimization of inks and 3D printing process of functional nanomaterials and parts

To develop ink formulations and 3D printing route for fabrication of functional nanomaterials with tailored combination of properties and smart nanomaterials
Expected Results:
– developed and optimized functional nanoparticles, e.g. nano-photoinitiators;
– developed ink formulations for 3D printing process on the basis of understanding the nanoparticles interactions and rheology of inks (WP1);
– optimized of the 3D printing process for ceramic objects based on ceramic nanoparticles and of stimuli-responsive hydrogels with nano-photoinitiators;
– characterized printed parts
