Polymer Additive Manufacturing Workshop

On 25-26th August 2020, Claire participated in a Momentum Initiative Workshop
sponsored by the State of Technology Awareness Initiative, Los Alamos National Laboratory: “Emerging materials and process development for polymer/non-metal additive manufacturing“. Claire was invited to give a presentation on her ongoing research entitled “Molecular orientation and crystallization in MatEx 3D printing”.

The workshop focused on current challenges and opportunities in additive manufacturing of non-metallic materials, including novel chemistries/compositions for material precursors as well as the techniques, processing design, and measurement science needed to enable materials development.
