3D Printing of Functional Materials

Orbey, N., University of Massachussetts - Lowell

Innovations in functional materials need to be made in parallel with the evolution of recent additive manufacturing processes to widen the application of next-generation additive manufacturing. Although additive manufacturing made a significant impact on mainstream research there still remains a great challenge in understanding relationships between manufacturing process and performance in 3D printed materials. This session will focus on recent advances in functional polymers and materials including conductive materials, nanoporous materials (metal organic frameworks and porous carbons) and stimulus responsive materials for 3D printing. Experimental and computational contributions are both of interest. Topics include, but not limited to Contributions addressing all methods of polymer additive manufacturing, including fused deposition modeling, stereolithography, selective laser sintering, and direct write Printable functional feedstock materials ***Note to faculty candidates: please include a note to the session chair during submission to alert them to your status***
