Researchers Print Tunable Fluorescent Materials

A team of researchers from the Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College, have published a paper detailing their experiments into 3D printable fluorescent materials with tunable optical properties.

In particular, the research has focused on resin type printing with an LCD printer, and according to the paper the team has been successful in producing fluorescent materials with tunable absorption and scattering properties, using a selection of commercially available resins as a base.
