3D printing provides tremendous opportunities for developing new integrated systems in optics and photonics. The additional degree of freedom in the z-direction makes it an irreplaceable prototyping, fabrication and manufacturing tool.
SUTD researchers uncover the promising capability of chitin as a sustainable smart biomaterial. Through water exchange with the environment, humidity-responsive chitinous films can generate mechanical and electrical energy for potential use in engineering and biomedical applications.
SUTD and A*STAR researchers produced a quick and energy-efficient technique to rapidly synthesise 2D mica nanosheets for effective carbon dioxide capture, advancing the research of the power generation sector, environmental and regulatory agencies and scientists in mitigating carbon emissions.
SUTD scientists developed a novel CMOS-compatible, slow-light-based transmission grating device for the dispersion compensation of high-speed data, significantly lowering data transmission errors and paving the way for on-chip integration.
SUTD researchers developed a fully knitted, circuit-embedded knee wearable for wireless sensing of joint motion in real-time. Compared to other knitted electronics, this model has fewer externally integrated components and a more sensitive sensor, making it less error-prone.
SUTD led research in a 3D printed optical security label with nano-sized features. It taps on ambient light sources and is harder to crack due to its 33100 possible combinations.
