LIFT is a relatively new printing technique that enables transfer from a thin-film donor material onto your chosen receiver placed nearby. Unlike conventional laser-printers, which print liquids or inks, LIFT printing can transfer solid phase materials in (ideally) an intact state, for a range of applications in photonics, electronics, displays, medicine and energy harvesting. The lasers used are short pulse systems (nanosecond to femtosecond sources), and the donors are typically ~ µm thickness, and the universal aim is to print the material you want, where you want it, and to make sure that its functionality is not degraded during the printing process.
The talk will describe the mechanics of the LIFT process, and discuss our results to date in LIFTing of metals, semiconductors, biomaterials, ceramics and also fully single-crystal discs. As always, there are some special tricks to successful LIFT-printing, so I will let you into some of the these ‘secrets’ as well as describing some of our more recent attempts to shape the printed pixels using digitial multimirror devices.

Abstract

LIFT is a relatively new printing technique that enables transfer from a thin-film donor material onto your chosen receiver placed nearby. Unlike conventional laser-printers, which print liquids or inks, LIFT printing can transfer solid phase materials in (ideally) an intact state, for a range of applications in photonics, electronics, displays, medicine and energy harvesting. The lasers used are short pulse systems (nanosecond to femtosecond sources), and the donors are typically ~ µm thickness, and the universal aim is to print the material you want, where you want it, and to make sure that its functionality is not degraded during the printing process.
The talk will describe the mechanics of the LIFT process, and discuss our results to date in LIFTing of metals, semiconductors, biomaterials, ceramics and also fully single-crystal discs. As always, there are some special tricks to successful LIFT-printing, so I will let you into some of the these ‘secrets’ as well as describing some of our more recent attempts to shape the printed pixels using digitial multimirror devices.
