It was rated as the minimum density of 3D printing print graphene airgel structure –3D
Recently, an assistant professor of industrial and systems engineering at Buffalo State University of New York ChiZhou, industrial and manufacturing systems engineering from Kansas State University assistant professor and associate professor of China Lanzhou University DongLin Zhang strong cooperation has developed a 3D printing graphene Aerogels , It has been named the \”smallest 3D printing density structure of the\” Guinness Book of World records. It is reported that three materials engineers from different universities developed 3D printinghas been named the Guinness Book of World Records\’ smallest 3D printing density structure \”will appear in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2018 version. The structure is very light and can be placed on a cotton ball or a petal tip and does not fall off. Of 3D printing industry, this is a very important milestone. The 3D printing materials engineering structure is a miracle, weighing only 0.5 milligrams per cubic centimeter. Three engineers were Assistant Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering, State University of New York at Buffalo ChiZhou, Kansas State University (KSU) industrial and manufacturing systems engineering assistant professor and associate professor of China Lanzhou University DongLin Zhang strong. \”This extremely light 3D printing graphene airgel has many important characteristics, can be used to make better flexible electronic devices, batteries, semiconductors, and even building insulation, has great potential for application in our daily lives , \”Lin said. According to reports, 3D print technology behind this material is equally impressive. Over the years, people have been trying to print 3D graphene – an ultra strong material. The three-person team that before them, only two teams successfully print this material. In order to print their 3D graphene airgel, three engineers used even with a modified version of the injection nozzles of the printer. In a refrigerator, they construct -20 ℃ plate graphene oxide and a mixture of water dropwise at a temperature of 3D printing. This produces a 3D structure of a graphene ice and ice water, to help maintain the shape of the graphene. Thereafter, the 3D engineers such material is placed in a freeze dryer to remove the ice, leaving a final 3D graphene airgel. Such materials can maintain the shape at room temperature. \”By this 3D printing method, we can control the shape of the graphene aerogels ideally we can control the airgelThe electrical and mechanical properties, \”Lin said.
