LLNL researchers successfully 3D print high-performance optics using custom inks

An exciting new breakthrough in the field of 3D printed optics was recently achieved by a team of researchers based at California’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). Scientists and engineers that worked on the optics project developed a new 3D printing technique that made use of special inks, which were extruded from a customized printer. They successfully printed small test pieces that had high-level optical properties, on par with many commercially available glass products. A patent has now been filed for the innovative 3D printing process. We reported before on the 3D printed optics work of LLNL. Many 3D […]
