En bref


HES-SO Research Program / Young Researchers Projects (2021)

The present project is a first step toward the manufacturing of continuously varying gradient material with inkjet technology. The main objective is to build up basic understanding on multimaterial droplet interaction for creating tailored made surfaces. Through the vehicle of inks with different softness grades which are doped with mechanochromic additive, we have developed a multi-material inkjet platform, which allows to create gradient materials with new performance. The additive will help to characterize this new kind of materials on one hand and on the other hand it’s the start of creating new passive pressure and temperature sensors.
