3D Printing After Two Years of COVID-19: An Analysis

3D Printing After Two Years of COVID-19: An Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unique challenges for the 3D printing industry. Traditional AM target industries have been disrupted, however, its advantages have been highlighted through its use in healthcare and ability to provide flexibility when supply chains become disrupted. This IDTechEx subscriber only article summarizes the recovery of the 3D printing industry from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Self-healing Anti-corrosion Anti-fouling Material Opportunities

Self-healing Anti-corrosion Anti-fouling Material Opportunities

The direct cost of corrosion accounts for about 2-5% of a nation's GDP. For example, steel structures and steel rod "rebar" reinforcing concrete in bridges, tunnels, dams and buildings rust bursting away the concrete as shown bottom right. Those structures often have to be replaced prematurely meaning 3-30 years instead of hundred of years.

Fitness Sensor Warns When You're at Your Limits

Ultrathin nanomaterials, known as MXenes, are poised to make it easier to monitor a person's well-being by analyzing their perspiration. While they share a similar two-dimensional nature to graphene, MXenes are composed of nontoxic metals, such as titanium, in combination with carbon or nitrogen atoms. With naturally high conductivity and strong surface charges, MXenes are attractive candidates for biosensors that can detect small changes to chemical concentrations.

Phosphorene Nanoribbons Live up to Hype in First Demonstration

Phosphorene Nanoribbons Live up to Hype in First Demonstration

Researchers have incorporated phosphorene nanoribbons into new types of solar cells, dramatically improving their efficiency. Phosphorene nanoribbons are ribbon-like strands of the 2D material phosphorous, which, similar to graphene, are made of single-atom-thick layers of atoms. PNRs were first produced in 2019, and hundreds of theoretical studies have predicted how their properties could enhance all kinds of devices, including batteries, biomedical sensors, and quantum computers.

Self-healing Materials in Commercial Use

Mainstream applications of self-healing materials involve more that just the ability of materials to creep and fill cracks or even the self-healing mechanisms withing electrolytic capacitors and batteries. By mainstream we mean materials tailored specifically to be self-healing and used to replace regular materials such as concrete, polymers and corrosion coatings for metals.
