Additive Manufacturing and Architected Materials (3D Printing LIVE! USA 2014)

Dr Eric Duoss,
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
United States
 
Nov 20, 2014.

Presentation Summary

This work focuses on developing next-generation additive processes that are capable of micro- and nano-scale features and have the ability to create components with mixtures of materials ranging from polymers to metals and ceramics.
Development of these processes also involves the synthesis and materials science of feedstocks such as photopolymers and nanoparticles.
These capabilities are utilized to fabricate micro-architected materials with unique designer properties, such as negative thermal expansion.

Speaker Biography (Eric Duoss)

Dr. Eric B. Duoss is currently a Member of the Technical Staff at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where he conducts research in the areas of advanced materials and manufacturing combined with micro-architected design.
