Seminar Series in Aerospace Manufacturing Technologies

In the seminar series in aerospace manufacturing technologies, we are presenting invited speakers on selected topics in the field of novel manufacturing technologies. The upcoming seminar talk will be given by Dr. Kaline Furlan who is assistant professor at the Integrated Materials Systems Group at the Hamburg University of Technology.

Functional Ceramic Nanostructures by Combining 3D printing with Atomic Layer Deposition

Abstract: The potential applications of macroporous ceramic nanostructures are several, including sensorics, catalysis, biomedicine, energy conversion, and photonics. Some of these applications require that the materials are shaped into 3D geometries not attainable by conventional fabrication processes. In this talk, I will show that combining additive manufacturing with colloidal assembly (AMCA) [1], followed by functionalization via atomic layer deposition (ALD) is an attractive route toward functional nanostructures. I will further demonstrate the feasibility of low-temperature ALD in combination with 3D printing for the fabrication of tailored ceramic nanostructures. Our low-temperature ALD developments reveal the possibility of homogeneously introducing dopants onto zirconia [2] and titania [3], as well as the capability to generate dual-phase structures and precise stoichiometric phases, such as mullite [4]. The talk will focus on photonic applications [5], but we foresee the application of such 3D printed ALD-engineered materials also in biomedical applications, sensors and energy conversion devices [6].
