Dartmouth smart ink 3D prints, shrinks and transforms smart materials

A 3D printed, shrunken Arc de Triomphe represents the result of the latest research undertaken by the Ke Functional Materials Group at Dartmouth College . Focused on developing innovative materials for 3D and 4D printing applications, the Ke Group’s most recent ink makes objects that change size and color in reaction to external stimulus. Though still far from producing an end-use article, the study lays important groundwork for scientists seeking to produce smart materials capable of self-assembly , and performing useful tasks in medical research , engineering and more. Professor Chenfeng Ke, pricipal investigator of the Ke Group, comments, […]
