3D-printing project set new speed record for printing in nanoscale resolution

The PHOCAM project focused on two core techniques - 3D printing for high-performance ceramics and 3D printing with ultra-high resolution - and achieved remarkable results. It improved processes so significantly that its printed ceramic parts now measure up to the most stringent criteria for high-precision engineering, and it set a new speed record for printing in nanoscale resolution.

Atoms in a nanocrystal cooperate, much like in biomolecules

Researchers have long thought that biological molecules and synthetic nanocrystals were similar only in size. Now, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign chemists have found that they can add reactivity to the list of shared traits. Atoms in a nanocrystal can cooperate with each other to facilitate binding or switching, a phenomenon widely found in biological molecules.
