Researchers Use 3D Printer to Print Chalcogenide Glass

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
QUEBEC CITY, Canada, April 23, 2019 — For the first time, researchers have successfully 3D-printed chalcogenide glass, a unique material used to make optical components that operate at mid-IR wavelengths. The ability to 3D print this glass could make it possible to manufacture complex glass components and optical fibers for new types of low-cost sensors, telecommunications components, and biomedical devices. Researcher Patrick Larochelle and his colleagues from the Centre d’Optique, Photonique et Laser (COPL) at Université Laval in Canada described how they modified a commercially available 3D printer for...Read full article
