Panat lab received a multi-year research award from the CMMI division of NSF. The award supports research focused on a novel additive manufacturing method that involves a build-up of strong 3D microscale structures by printing metal nanoparticles dispersed into a solvent followed by nanoparticle sintering. The research will be in collaboration with co-PI, Dr. H. Zbib, who will carry out multi-scale simulations to capture the deformation behavior of the additive structures.
