Metamaterials for Selective Spatial Solidification
Light and heat have been used to manufacture objects layer by layer in additive manufacturing technologies. In this project, sound is used to create object by interacting with build material. Wide range of material such polymer, composites, glass, ceramic and metal can be manufactured and the produced part has functional properties. The project introduces an alternative route for creating objects and opens new doors for future research. The outcome of the project is used to create a new class of manufacturing machines that can create jobs and intellectual property to Canada. Moreover, the results will be published in peer-reviewed journals and patents.
