Nanostack printing for materials research


nano3D printer with robot arm functioning for routine printing

The nano3D printer from deliverable D1.1 will be validated by synthesizing arrays of fluorescent molecules.

Duplicated nano3D printer

Supported by KIT, PPP will duplicate nano3D printer that is shown in Fig. 3. We will re-design the automated loading procedure to speed up the whole process. This will be done with cupping vessels that transport the next donor slide from a parking position to the lasing position, and, at the same time, remove the previous donor slide. A robot arm will then replenish the parking position with another donor slide, while at the same time material transfer is done with the active donor slide.

Reaction chamber for sintering / coupling at defined temperatures available

Manufacturing and testing of a set of gas-tight chambers that will be used to incubate acceptor glass slides with printed nanolayers in a defined atmosphere. Optionally, some of these gas-tight chambers should withstand very high temperature (360°C). We will test this point - might be we don't need that high temperatures.

Donor slides made of > 5 different commercially available chemicals

KIT will formulate >5 different organic materials into donor slides and transfer tehm with the help of the nano3D printer onto an acceptor slide.
