Modified, 3D-printable alloy shows promise for flexible electronics, soft robots

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, engineering, nanotechnology, robotics/AI

Researchers in Oregon State University’s College of Engineering have taken a key step toward the rapid manufacture of flexible computer screens and other stretchable electronic devices, including soft robots.

The advance by a team within the college’s Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems Institute paves the way toward the 3D printing of tall, complicated structures with a highly conductive gallium alloy.

Researchers put nickel nanoparticles into the , galinstan, to thicken it into a paste with a consistency suitable for .
