New Microfabrication Technique Using Fiber Optics

Researchers at Brown University have developed a technique for 3D printing biomaterial that falls apart when triggered. If you’re designing a building or a piece of furniture, a structure that falls apart is exactly what you don’t want. Yet in smaller-scale applications, like microfluidics, degradable structures can be especially useful. With this as their goal, a team […]
