According to Sourabh Saha, the paper’s lead and corresponding author is now an assistant professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, “Instead of using a single point of light, we project a million points simultaneously. This scales up the process dramatically because instead of working with a single point that has to be scanned to create the structure, we can use an entire plane of projected light. Instead of focusing on a single point, we have an entire focused plane that can be patterned into arbitrary structures.”
Supersonic Jet’s Nanoscale Additive Manufacturing. According to professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology Andrei Fedorov,” we are controlling matter on the atomic scale to bring about new modes of additive manufacturing. This new science could bring about additive manufacturing applications that might otherwise be impossible. The resulting new technology will open up new dimensions for additive manufacturing at the atomic scale.
When we went to the lab to use nanofabrication with focused electron beams, which are the size of a few nanometers, we could not grow structures that were just a few nanometers. They grew to be 50 or 100 nanometers. And it also took a long time to produce the structures, which meant that, without improvements, we’d never be able to produce them at high volume.”
