Rapid Manufacturing for Dielectric Energy Storage Materials

Rapid manufacturing and characterization of dielectric energy storage material

Abstract:

The bridge between academic research and industrially produced devices is largely overlooked in the pursuit of "advanced materials". In order to make practical devices, processing methods that allow for commercialization must be employed in the academic setting. Designing materials with high throughput printing and curing techniques accomplishes this goal of high performance, high manufacturability products. This project used UV cure polymers, deposited with an inkjet printer to build devices on a layer-by-layer basis for energy storage applications.
