Silver Cloud

Using foglike microdroplets of silver, WSU researchers create intricate structures that mimic natural materials. Pictured: nanoparticles forming the letters W S U.
Washington State University researchers have developed a unique, 3-D manufacturing method that for the first time rapidly creates and precisely controls a material’s architecture from the nanoscale to centimeters – with results that closely mimic the intricate architecture of natural materials like wood and bone.

They report on their work in the journal Science Advances and have filed for a patent. » More ...
