August 28, 2018 – A team of Scientists at City University of Hong Kong published their study of a ground-breaking advancement in materials they have developed. These scientists claim this research as the World’s first-ever 4d printing for ceramics. To overcome the challenges presented by the high melting point of ceramics which makes it difficult to use conventional laser printing on to ceramics, these scientists have developed a novel "ceramic ink," which is a mixture of ceramic nanoparticles and polymers.
These flexible and stretchable ceramic precursors allow complex shapes, such as origami folding. With proper heat treatment, ceramics with complex shapes can be made. The existing 3D-printed ceramic precursors, which are usually difficult to deform, also hinder the production of ceramics with complex shapes.
