Liquid Silica Resin Optimizes 3D Printing for Complex Micro-Optics

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
A liquid silica resin (LSR) developed by researchers at the University of Arizona has proven successful as a 3D-printing medium for complex micro-optics. The organic-inorganic hybrid material has shown high curing speeds, better mechanical properties, lower thermal treatment temperatures, and reduced shrinkage. Inorganic silica glass can be achieved by thermally treating the printed sample at 600 °C in air. For the 3D-printing of optics and micro-optics, the silica resin is an alternative to organic polymers. Despite their lightweight and low-cost qualities, organic polymer-based...Read full article
