Burak Eral and Luigi Sasso join forces to fight kidney stones

When the opportunity arose to set up a cohesion project, Burak Eral did not hesitate for a second. Burak Eral is a Tenure-Track lecturer at the Department of Process & Energy in the area of crystallisation & solids processing. He knew right away who he wanted to work with: Luigi Sasso, a Tenure-Track lecturer at the Department of Precision and Microsystems Engineering and an expert in the area of micro-manufacturing and sensors. A good match, as it turns out. Burak and Luigi have come up with a method to fight kidney stones.

‘Origami’ lattices with nano-scale surface ornaments

Inspired by the Japanese art of paper folding (origami), researchers at TU Delft are developing an alternative to 3D printing that allows the final products to have many more functionalities than what is possible with 3D printing. Those additional functionalities could, for instance, be used in medical implants or devices incorporating flexible electronics. In their publication in Science Advances on Wednesday November 29th, the scientists have successfully applied their technique to lattice structures.
